American merchants sail to a trading port as usual. This was the route that they usually took. There were no british vessels anywhere to be seen.
British vessels were waiting for them and fired one the first ship. Since the American merchant ships didn't carry the powerful guns they could not fight back, so it was easy for the Brithis to take them out.
The British go on board the American's ships and take the Americans for the Royal Navy. Also they take the goods that are already on the merchant ship. They would use the sailors to fight in their war anginst the French.
