The battle is recorded as a British victory, in that Washington was forced to withdraw. But, Howe missed another chance to crush Washington's army. After taking the high ground, he paused to set up camp and artillery batteries. After spending a few miserable nights on swampy ground, under the British guns, the Americans slipped away to the north on the night of November 1, escaping with their wounded and supplies.
Considering the numbers involved, casualties were light on both sides. The Continental Army lost 130 killed and wounded, while British losses came to about 230.
