I recently engaged in a long, fruitless and ultimately undecided argument about the battle with other people on another site. I maintain that the American victory was ultimately decided by artillery, musket and riflefire, with heavy emphasis on the 'rifle fire', considering how many British Unit commanders who were wounded and killed during the battle. Other folks argue that it was primarily an artillery battle and well-aimed rifle fire played a minor role. What say you?
