August 30th, 1778 - Morning
Sullivan assigned 100 men from the “first line” regiments to bury the American Army’s dead. The wounded were transported from the island to mainland hospitals and homes in Providence and Bristol. There were reports that around 140 wounded were treated. Americans buried the Hessian and Loyalist dead that were left by their right wing. The Americans who had not been wounded tried to recover from the battle. The British artillery fire continued from Turkey Hill, but the 1st Rhode Island Regiment held their position.
