general James Wilkinson was leading 8000 men towards Montreal
and was some 150 kilometres from his objective when the
rear of his force was harassed by 800 British regular soldiers
to fight, Wilkinson made a mess of the attack - throwing
his men forwards in an uncoordinated fashion - and was throughly
lost more than 300 men killed and wounded, while at least
100 more were taken prisoner.
Americans then retreated.
