What is the connection between the Battle of Minden and the American Revolution?

Heh, my attempts at Trivia are not good any more.

If you look in Seven Years War, in the battle of Minden, there is a British leader "Lord Sackville". He's in command of the Cavalry of the Right Wing.

In the battle, that cavalry remained uncommitted, despite being ordered to attack by Ferdinand of Brunswick, the army commander. Eventually, after the battle Sackville faced a court martial which declared him "unfit to serve His Majesty in any military capacity whatsoever". Ouch.

The connection to the ARW?

He's known in American History as Lord George Germain, Secretary of State for the American Colonies during the war.
