When the assault on the American rampart reached its height, the main British attack force found itself in front of the 44th Regiment which should have been in lead.

Discovering that Colonel Mullens and the 44th Regiment had advanced 500 yards beyond the sugar can bundles (fascines) and ladders stored for their use. Major General Gibbs immediately ordered Mullens to return with his men to the rear and retrieve their equipment. Mullens disappeared, and only some of his regiment returned to the front!

When Gibbs' column moved to within 150 yards of the rampart, the American infantry began shooting. This proved to be too much for the British; their ranks broke as they returned to fire. The 44th threw down their fascines and started shooting, also, catching a large part of their own troops in the cross fire.
