who were the hessians and what did they do?

best answer
  • Hessians (US / ˈhɛʃənz / or UK / ˈhɛsiənz /) were German soldiers who served as auxiliaries to the British Army during the American Revolutionary War. The term is an American synecdoche for all Germans who fought on the British side since 65% came from the German states of Hesse- Kassel and Hesse-Hanau.
