1. Germantown aka "How to Snatch Defeat from the Jaws of Victory" by Henry Knox- sorry, I grew up on the battlefield so it's still a sore point.
2.Bunker Hill
3.Cowpens
4.Lexington-Concord
5.Saratoga 1&2
I guess that's 6 technically…

The three clear favorites would be:
Oriskany-the basis for my original AWI armies in the 1970s
Cowpens
Guilford Courthouse

After those there are several that trade off, with the two current top runners are Blackstock's and Kings Mountain.

Winston Smith: Yeah I got more than 5 I have a soft spot for too. Germantown would have to be number 6 if I added more to the list, and probably Camden or Cowpens.
