Benjamin Franklin

The British Army was one of the most powerful military forces of the day. Their leaders were career officers. The troops were regularly trained and well equipped. Yet, the enlisted ranks were often filled with soldiers recruited against their will — poor and unemployed men, sometimes taken right from jail.

Most colonists who fought in this battle were not trained soldiers. They freely fought in militia units from their hometowns. The British commanders did not expect such an improvised army to perform as well as it did. Though the Americans lost this hill, they grew more unified and determined to fight for their freedom.
