Regarding Death of Lord Howe.
Also see . . . The Death of Lord Howe. "The suddenness of the assault, the terror inspired by the Indian yell, and the grief and astonishment created by the death of Lord Howe, excited a general panic among the British regulars…
But the death of Lord How had depressed the spirit and enfeebled the councils of the army; and to this circumstance its subsequent misfortunes were mainly ascribed."
