Sometimes micromanaging individual artillery pieces is the answer, but sometimes micromanagement is not an option. When commanding a division with 3-4 brigades (each made up of multiple regiments) plus 3-4 artillery units each made up of multiple artillery pieces, sometimes you simply do not have the time to micromanage.

In my case I was trying to get the entire division positioned as best as possible and I simply didn't have the time to go in and TC each arty piece in Waterman's arty battery. I had issued repeated orders to Waterman to get his get battery back but (as in real life no doubt), it didn't happen quickly enough.

Heat of the battle....multiple balls juggling at once...having the Reb's largest division marching down the road at me all factors that come into play.

I'm probably stating the obvious here---LOL.

Needless to say, Capt. Waterman was not going to be on my after action report to HQ for any medal recommendations.

Artillery commanders often seem to be an extra level of insubordinate, don't they?

Too bad there isn't an option to replace them with someone more compliant if they refuse your orders. :lol:
