Seeing that the British line was much shorter than his own, Greene decided to counterattack. He ordered the 1st Maryland and 2nd Virginia regiments to make a frontal attack against the advancing British troops, while the 2nd Maryland regiment struck Rawdon's right flank and the 1st Virginia assailed the British left.

Greene also ordered William Washington and his cavalry to circle past the British right and strike them from the rear.

The daring American charge halted the British advance. The Continentals pressed forward while Colonel Charles Harrison's artillery blasted the outnumbered Redcoats.

Rawdon sent his light infantry forward to protect his right flank, and the convalescent company to protect the British left.
