The battle drew to a climax as the rolling barrage of musket fire and cannons escalated to a crescendo, and two massive blue-and-grey battle lines surged towards each other.

But just at the critical moment, time ran out, and the Union and Confederate troops were forced to resolve their differences at Gen Con 2009! The Civil War miniatures event was hosted by the 19&one gaming club, and organized by game master Kevin Carroll. The battle was a continuation of a "what-if" campaign he designed using the Fire & Fury rules system and introduced at Gen Con 2007.

Game master Kevin Carroll overseas the battle.

Carroll said he enjoyed reading about the Civil War, and was always interested about the possibility of an intervention by French forces in Mexico. Last year, the Union forces were able to prevent the Confederates and their French allies from capturing New Orleans. Now, they need to press the advantage and pursue the fleeing Rebels across Texas.
