Units were Brigades.
Another superb game with FOB with the ever present feeling of an epic encounter and a real narrative to the battle.
Rebels had a Skilled deck and some Elite units and decent leaders (mostly D10) and a line of entrenchments against my more numerous Yanks but saddled with a Poor deck and mediocre units and leaders (a lot of D8).
I decided not to attack the central Rebel defences instead pushing my main attack on my left with my extra numbers a conducting a holding action on the right.
This proved to be a good decision as the Rebels attacked relentlessly on my right.
Thankfully my Brigades here held on despite a lot of losses even managing to Rout a couple of Rebel units.
This flank was remarkable for how mutually awful our volleys were with only close combat proving decisive.
The center was essentially nullified as I would not attack and defenders would not leave their entrenched line.
This left my left flank as the decisive area.
I attacked from the get go and sent my reserves here.
My initial attacks where successful pushing the Rebels back although they did Rally due to good officers.
I attacked across the river and timing was fortuitous as I was able to get across whilst enemy were 'unloaded' and was able to take a section of entrenchments.
The Rebel morale pool depleted and I was gaining Morale and eventually the dread Army Morale check cards appeared for the grey clad force.
Le Duc managed to pass one by rolling a 12 to my 10 ! but on second card I again rolled a 10 and the Rebels succumbed and yielded the field.
A great game in a reasonable time with a plausible outcome cannot really ask for more.
Yank center surveys the formidable trench line and opt for descretion over valour.
And forward they come
