Lasalle Prussian vs French 1814

Lasalle game today with Stephen using my Prussians against his Young Guard. French were attackers but with rain and mud their chance of success fairly minimal (as their eight turns barely allowed them to reach my set up zone even in march column) no complaints on Prussian side ! still an interesting game with French having 4 batteries of Artillery (2 x 3 guns batteries with reserve unit) and Prussians having 5 on table Cavalry units (3 Landwehr 1 Dragoon & 1 Hussar). French Artillery fairly pounded my center blasting my Foot artillery and Line Infantry unit. Draw in end mud slowed all progress.
