Best Answer

It wasn't forbidden, it just wasn't really done. Up to about that point in time, the weapons used by most armies were not accurate enough to target a particular person at any sort of range. When the colonists brought out their long range rifles and started picking off people at a couple hundred yards, warfare changed. There were some battles in which the shooting of officers served as a key turning point in the fight.
