On September 2, after a profitable morning of burning on either side of the river, a detachment landed at a village nestled below a newly built church. As the soldiers went about their work, a small group headed uphill to set fire to the church. At that moment, as many as 300 of Boishébert’s fighters charged out of the woods, firing as they ran. A battle raged for three hours, leaving more than twenty New England soldiers dead and several more badly wounded. Boishébert lost only one man. The British casualties—eclipsing those of the entire siege of Beauséjour—put the entire camp on edge.
