At 4:00 on the morning of October 9th, 1779, the Revolutionary War was on the threshold of its bloodiest hour. Having besieged British held Savannah for the better part of three weeks, the Allied high command of French Admiral Comte d'Estaing and American Major General Benjamin Lincoln decided upon a direct assault before worsening weather further damaged the French fleet. As the Franco-American Allies approached the British right in the pre-dawn darkness many units lost their way while the skirl of Highland bagpipes pierced the morning stillness indicating that some of the best units in the British army lay unexpectedly in their path. Having lost the element of surprise d'Estaing considered countermanding the attack orders but felt he could not do so without losing face with the Americans. With a reputation for personal bravery he determined it was better to die than risk losing honor.
