The initial cannonade caused the American light cannon to take a hit from the British heavy artillery but was otherwise unremarkable. The British then started their attack on the centre, concentrating on the Birmingham Court House while the American chose to embroil the light troops on the flank in fighting. After a second turn Line Command that enabled the British to get all their troops forward the Birmingham Court House was overrun and the garrison retreated to the hill in their rear; on the flank the British had retreated. The British now concentrated units on the Brandywine River end of the Birmingham Hill, eventually shooting off a regular unit with the help of the artillery. The Americans shot back, also inflicting casualties. A British Line Volley forced back four American units from the hills but General Stephen was able to reoccupy his end of the hill line. Over the next few turns the two armies grappled with each other with close tactical play as units fought at close quarters in melee, but the British were able to force back the Americans and put units onto enough hills to claim a victory. However, the Americans fought valiantly, and General Stirling with a single regular unit worked hard to push back the British, achieving success for several turns and causing General Agnew to be carried from the field. In the end the British stood triumphant on the hills.

The finally tally:
British – 3 regular units eliminated, Birmingham Court House and four hills
American – 2 regular and 2 grenadier units eliminated plus General Agnew

Campaign score:
Tactical 50/39
Strategic 5/3
