They were lightly armed, little training and did not used uniforms. They units served for only a few weeks or month at a time. They were reluctant to travel in extended operations far from home because of their lack of training and discipline from other soldiers with more experience.

At The battles of Concord, Bennington, Saratoga and Boston both sides used partisan warfare, but Americans were more effectively when British forces were not in the area.

Officers can’t be everywhere at once, so the NCOs maintained discipline within the ranks.
These three lines connected at various points by small, twisted trenches (Stewart 40). Trenches varied from eight to six feet in height (Simkin). In these waterlogged trenches there was a need for extra support so wood boards were placed on the side and on the floor for assistance and a safe area for walking (Simkin).
