On to the Chantilly game:
The CSA blunts the USA assault...the tide turns and the beginning of the end for the US forces
An action shot of the last US attempt to hold off the advancing CSA infantry. An unsuccessful attempt as it turned out. The CSA army went on to a glorious crushing victory (guess which side I was on).
Overall, a fun game and an interesting scenario. The US had 8 infantry and 3 artillery, with a couple of Raw infantry units and a couple of Crack artillery batteries. The CSA had 12 infantry, 4 Crack and 8 Regular. An interesting tactical situation - the CSA army had no interest in venturing into the open and suffer under the US artillery, and the woods helped turn the flank combats into bloody short range slugfests.
