We played through the battle using Regimental Fire and Fury, and it was one of the better games we've had.

Great AAR. Thanks for sharing and I hope your leg has fully healed.

Nice AAR. Made me get out my Cozzens book on Iuka for a quick read. My only comment is that you need more trees on the table. It does look like a good scenario.

Nice! We'll be playing Iuka next year as we crank through the 150th anniversary battles.

I echo your thoughts on the new F&F rules being better than the old, and in fact we'll be adapting them for brigade-level play for First Bull Run later in the summer. There has already been some (brief) discussion of this on the RF&F forum.

We've played this scenario at least three times, though using TFL 'They Couldn't Hit an Elephant'. It is a cracking game.

Great batrep, I don't know much about the battle like you said. I'll have to do a little reading. Nice one!!

Nice battle report. I have an interest in this battle as my great-grandfather and several of his brothers were there with the 36th Mississippi Infantry.
