As far as bayonets in the Revolution ( ours ) , at the beginning the colonials had none, the British and Hessians had a great advantage. It was only after the regulars received weapons from France were the colonial's able to " stick it back to the redcoats ". In the first battles the colonials would fire off a shot and then run like hell to out run the bayonets. As stated the Snaphaunce was not in use during that period in the new world.
