ABSTRACT
The article investigates the failure of Lieutenant-Colonel Heinrich Breymann at the Battle of Bennington in New York on August 16, 1777. It is inferred that Breymann's unsuccessful attempt to rescue the command of Lieutenant-Colonel Friedrich Baum resulted to the annihilation of Baum's force by General John Stark's American militia. The efforts of military officers and historians to examine the causes of Breymann's failure at Bennington is explored.
