Last Monday our scheduled game got put back so while on a roll we played another ACW skirmish with the Sixty-One-Sixty-Five Rules. This time we set up Scenario 2, 1863 Looking for Shoes! from the Rulebook. The Victory Conditions like Scenario 1 require both the sides to 'kill' 1/3 of the opposition to win. This time the USA was on the defensive with the chance an artillery piece would be deployed! There was lots of cover available to both sides and the CSA had a slight advantage in numbers, 80 figures to the USA's 72 (including the gun crew).

The action begins, the Rebs are attacking from the right.

While a large Monty Python hand hovers Rebel skirmishers in the old barn continue to pepper the Zouaves. Note 4 figures are now reversed, this indicates shaken men!

Fighting rages in the corn field! It is here on the Union left that the game will be decided with a very successful charge into the Yanks flank.

With heavy losses the Union side is beaten, the losses which were equal until the last '2' turns were USA 26 and CSA 11. The Yankee commander rued the fact the expected artillery support failed to materialise!

The full AAR with more pictures is on the TSOG blog…
