Phillips was a British major general who commanded a regiment of the Royal Artillery under General John Burgoyne at the Battle of Saratoga. He led the retreat from Saratoga, and was taken as a prisoner of war and later exchanged for the American general Benjamin Lincoln who was captured at Charleston, South Carolina. Phillips then joined the British forces under General Sir Henry Clinton and subsequently campaigned in Rhode Island and in Virginia where he contracted a fever from which he died.
