The redcoats lost and the colonialists won, of course.
That's because all that happened in 1776.
It was happening against as a re-enactment at the Historic Arkansas Museum as part of the institution's July 4th celebration.
For Jennifer Salinas and her little boy it means this: "Independence, freedom for our country, remembrance of fighting for the liberties we have today."
And for Gissia Kelley and her son Ian, the celebration is a way of remaining in touch with a loved one.
Kelley's husband is serving overseas with the Army and could not attend the museum's events as the family did last year.
"He's not able to celebrate the Fourth with us, so I come here to celebrate for all of us," she said.
The event kicked off at 2 p.m. and finished up at 4 p.m.
It was free and open to the public.
