Just a small game involving a few units aside and based on the battle around Brawner's Farm at Second Manassas.
The objective for the game was simple - Take and hold the field in the middle of the table.
This meant that as the Union were starting in possession of the field the Rebels had to force all Union troops out of the field and then providing they were able to keep some troops in the field, they would win.
If the Rebels were to evict all the Union troops in the field then the Union would have to regain the field by pushing out all the Rebels and then, as long as there were some Union troops in the field they would win.
Confused?? I think I am!
|More Union troops arriving on the edge of the field.|
|Rebel artillery pounding the Union lines.|
|More Rebels moving up.|
|A stubborn Union unit hanging on.|
A Union victory then but not by much.
Another very enjoyable evening with great company.
Thanks for the game lads.
