Last Monday we played our first game of Longstreet in ages, it was the first of 9 that will comprise a Grand Campaign!

It was an interesting affair set in 1861 with the Rebs attacking. Unusually for Longstreet (in our experience) BOTH sides became quite mobile! The Southerners main advance was with a powerful infantry force on their right. The Yankees took advantage of the weak Reb centre/right and defeated the forces there then advancing on troops on the rear of the Southerners main attacking force! While this was unfolding both sides cavalry detachments played cat and mouse with each other. The main action now developed on the Rebel left/Yankee right. Both sides infantry launched several attacks and in the end the Northerners inflicted enough casualties on their enemy to score a victory!

Here are a few pictures from the night…

Rebel Col Anderson leads his cavalry forward only to find boggy ground blocking their planned route..


Close up of the Rebel Grand Charge developing!


The destruction of the 69th Kentucky Infantry Regiment the point of the game where the Rebels lose 4 bases taking them to 17 lost in total which proved enough for the Yankees to seize victory at the end of their Player Turn…


The full AAR is on the TSOG blog here…

Great looking game! Impressive Union victory especially in the early portion of the war…I always enjoyed my games of Longstreet. Been ages since I've played.

Looks like it was an exciting game, and great report! Good to see the line ups, and then what the changes were after the battle, excellent. Keep us posted on when your next reports arrive.

Haven't played Longstreet in way too long, need to paint up some more troops, too. Thanks for the inspiration!
