For most of 1775, Revolutionary troops under the command of George Washington had the British Army trapped in Boston, but it was hard to say who was at the mercy of whom. By July, after three months of skirmishes (cuộc chạm chán) against the Redcoats, Washington’s soldiers had only enough gunpowder (thuốc súng) for nine bullets per man. The year prior, as tensions in the colonies worsened, George III banned the import of firearms and gunpowder from Europe, and had been confiscating (tịch thu, sung công) them in a bid to disarm (tước vũ khí, giải giới) the rebellion (cuộc nổi loạn). The only American gunpowder mill, the Frankford Powder-Mill in Pennsylvania, wasn’t producing enough to fight a war. Knowing their guns were close to becoming useless, the Americans began equipping themselves with wooden pikes (cây lao, cây thương) and spears (cái giáo, cái mác) for hand-to-hand combat.
