American (USMC)Japanese
With the U.S. Marines now firmly established on Guadalcanal, the Japanese landed more troops at Taivu Point, 18 miles east of the Marine-held Henderson Field. The Japanese commander planned to attack the Marine positions after having his engineers cut a trail through the dense jungle toward Henderson Field. Colonel Edson was dispatched with the reorganized forces of the 1st Raider Battalion to eliminate this supposedly small enemy force. In the early morning, the first wave of Raiders came ashore at Taivu Point where they found signs of recent landings. Edson quickly deployed his men to attack with two companies along the coast while a third curved inland to strike the Japanese flank from the south. At mid-morning the Raiders made contact with the defenders near Tasimboko.
