That is one beautiful looking game! Shiloh was one of my favorite battles, as one of my first wargames was 'Fury in the West' by Avalon Hill.

Nicely done!

Great AAR! When we play Shiloh we have found that unless the Rebs are both aggressive and lucky early in the game it is awfully hard to achieve both objectives – notably if the Yanks can get any kind of battle line in the sunken road

Thanks! and yes the Rebs have a hard task, in this version the luck seemed to even out. They were delayed by Prentiss and Sherman's holding action early on, but benefited from the Union placing a unit with smoothbores in the sunken road. This meant the Rebs could plug away at their leisure with their artillery and rifle armed units and the Union troops couldn't reply. Of course the sensible course in such a situation may perhaps have been for the Union troops to withdraw further into the cover of the woods to even out the range difference rather than just stand there and take it…
