    5:33 there was no panic, the commanding officer in the group had said "SIEZE FIRE" but the soldiers only heard "- FIRE". and the colonists didnt not like the idea of taxation or paying their debt, they were already being worked to the bone and paying their due taxes in the form of natural resources, the added stamp act and sugar act were just salt in wounds that were unnecessary at the time. and for the "chicken fighting"(tar and feathering as a form of punishment) was most commonly used by loyalists to shame those whom wanted independence.

    The British only fought with bows and currently only fight on sea because they shit themselves at the prospect of having to fight anyone directly (like men); no wonder the modern-day British default war

    strategy consists of hiding their island, keeping a strong navy to prevent anyone from landing there so as to avoid having to fight anyone directly (like men) and, the most important part, BEG the United States (Britain's historic boyfriend), to please come save them. That's why they've made so much of the battle of Trafalgar when, in real-life, it had a little practical immediate effect and Napoleon barely sighed when receiving the news. But the British keep celebrating that victory because fighting on sea is all they can do, whenever they fight at land they get their sorry asses kicked even against "inferior" enemies such as Elphinstone's army in Afghanistan, Isandlwana, the American revolutionary war, Dunkirk, the Jews at Palestine, the Dutch at Medway (after which the British lost their fleet which meant their island was open to invasion after which they panicked and surrendered ending the war rather than fighting like men), Buenos Aires (twice) and Singapore, among many many others. That's why in Corunna they used their favorite tactic: be defeated and escape by sea (the same one used in Dunkirk).
    Here's a short list of British miserable failures:
    6-13 January 1842 - retreat from Kabul - entire British army captured or killed (17,000 KIA)
    3 September 1879 - Kabul ...again
    27 July 1880 - Maiwand - 900-1,000 British/Indian troops killed

    February 4, 1884 First Battle of El Teb

    4 September 1839 Battle of Kowloon - defensive victory
    June 24-26, 1859 Second Battle of Taku Forts

    Petropavlovsk - British landing repelled
    Battle of the Great Redan - British failure while the French do succeed in taking the Malakoff
    Balaclava - British lancers and hussars of the light brigade annihilated.
    Taganrog - failure of the Anglo-French contingent to take Taganrog
    Siege of Kars - Anglo Turkish force fails to take Kars

    Isandlwanna - an entire column wiped out. 1,400 killed
    Intombe - supply convoy wiped out. 104 dead
    Hlobane - No. 4 column wiped out. 225 killed

    Battle of Kosturino 1915

    29 May 1982 - Mount Kent Battle - 5 SAS dead in friendly fire incident.
    6-7 June 1982 - British paratroops vacate position under pressure, leaving radio codes
    8 June 1982 - Bluff Cove Air Attacks

    January 1814 - Battle of Jitgadh - British attack repulsed with 300 KIA
    Spring 1814 - Battle of Hariharpur Gadhi - British Indian army stymied.
    November 1814 - Battle of Nalapani - British force decimated with 700+ casualties
