Across from the federal position the confederate brigade prepared for battle. Their artillery was positioned so as to provide fire support to the massed Reb infantry. It was apparent to the union commander, Brigadier Rawlin, that about 3000 rebel infantry intended to advance on the center of the union line via the woods and broken ground in the center of the field of battle. The rebel cavalry appeared to be tasked with protecting the rebel artillery just in case the Yankees decided to go on the offensive, or maybe exploite some opportunity if it presented itself.

"We will keep the Marines in reserve" Brig Gen Rawlin gestured to an aide and his horse was brought to him. "I expect the Rebs wil fall on our center. The 1st Maine and the 11th New York will meet them. I will use both batteries to fire into the flanks of their assaulting columns as the come on as I know the will. The 14th Brooklyn will counterattack the left of the enemy attack and the new boys from Utah will strike the right. The cavalry will hold our right flank. Hopefully the 1st Minassota will arrive soon, but we need to be ready to fight this day without them. Those people over yonder mean to drive us off. They're arrogant people. Today we must stand firm"!

Rawlin settled into his saddle. "I'm confident we will prevail men, with or without Minassota".

Definitely liking the story telling (both from you and Sam Mustafa) aspect of this. Look forward to the next installment.

Hi
Thanks for the comments.
I particularly like how the individual Regiments start to develop a character of their own. The 11th New York for example are always getting shot up but always seem to fight hard.
The 1st Maine (Hvy Art) are also building a reputation.
Cheers

I'll be popping in this Sunday to play some FoGN with a view to the tourney in July.
Looking forward to it.
Working on some lists tonight for myself and Arnaud.
It's been so long since I've played FoGN I'll need the practice on Sunday to blow the cobwebs out Laughing
