Isn’t it redundant to say that you’re outnumbered AND outgunned AND outmanned?

Outgunned probably refers to cannon, arguably you could say outnumbered refers to number of troops and outmanned refers to quality since the the british soldiers were heavily trained compared to the americans. 

Yeah, I haven’t seen Hamilton, but to me it sounds like:

  • They have more troops.
  • They’re better-equipped.
  • They’re better fighters.

The way I see it used in fiction, “outgunned” can also refer to superior marksmanship.
