On July 8, 1777, a force of about 1,000 American soldiers and militia attacked a group of about 200 British who were pursuing the American army that evacuated Fort Ticonderoga several days earlier. The battle lasted more than two hours, ending with both sides running low on ammunition and British reinforcements approaching.
