That was a most entertaining afternoon. Thanks, Chi and 2ndacr. I think I'm ready to try the Corp thing next time, so we can do the army vs army thing. Looking forward to next weekend.

It was fun.

In looking over the stats I don't think any of the brigades of our 4 divisions had more than 1-2 regiments of infantry left.

My division of 3 brigades had 2 inf regiments left (total).
I lost a few artillery pieces (and captured one Reb piece) but my batteries were largely intact.

The Rebs were off badly. Two divisions destroyed, and the third one was battered.

The battle had its ebb and flows, with the AI finding weaknesses in our lines and attempting to push thru them. Each time we somehow managed to scrounge up someone to plug the gap.

At the end I (Gen. Kearney, div. commander) was left standing behind the 3rd Maine inf reg. (with arty support in the background and one more inf reg standing off to the side resting/exhausted) facing 2-3 Reb inf regiments and at the end of it, the 3rd Maine was standing tall, with the Rebs running.

This map was a good one. We need to play some more battles on it.
