Nice photo-AAR from the Corlears Hook Fencibles:

It's interesting how this and other heavily wooded battlefields like The Wilderness or Spotsylvania actually promote maneuver more than they hinder it, because the limited lines of sight prevent artillery from dominating large stretches of terrain.


Bloody Big BATTLES!

Very nice report. I like having the commentary right on the pictures. Thanks!

I have been to that battlefield.. it is pristine: the only other large pristine battlefield is Shiloh ---which has better catfish restaurants. That said the AARis GREAT. This is a super set of rules.

Thank you, gents.

Wish I knew about the catfish restaurants back when I went to Shiloh. Found a fine BBQ place just north of Chattanooga…

Been there several times and always learn something new. Great report and pics…… would love to see the last two turns.

Me too, but the lads weren't up for leaving it until the next time. Instead we will refight it with me as Bragg.
