Than Cornwallis's Redcoats. And his strategy and stealth was more superior. Physicality is not everything. There is more than one way to skin a cat or in this case an elephant and little bird. Go Tigers!!!

his march to Guilford Courthouse and the Virginia border, in some cases commandeered every boat&ferry along the rivers....its a fascinating story and a remarkable strategy to defeat the wieldy British/Tory regulars on full march. (the story of the Battle of Guilford Courthouse was portrayed in the movie "The Patriot" when British cannons were fired into the midst of both armies.) Daniel Morgan had just recently whipped Banastre Tarleton at Cowpens....fascinating era of the Am. Revolution as the war was being won in the South. On to Yorktown
