In addition to Pułaski and Kovats, countless foreigners offered their services in the American Revolutionary War. The most famous of them was the French aristocrat Marquis de Lafayette, who fought by Washington’s side.
Foreigners fought on the British side as well. The British allied with various Indian tribes in the war, but they also deployed a large number of German (mostly Hessian) mercenaries.
Kovats was buried at the scene of the battle. His British opponent, Brigade Major Skelly, respected him, regarding the fallen hussar as "the best horseback rider of the rebels".
