Laid some very VERY primitive terrain down. Some lichen, a tree, and a large rock outcropping along with an unfinished timber snake-rail fence. There was also a treeline which would figure prominently into the Confederate battle strategy.
I diced for the scenario on a 1D6 1-2 Meeting Engagement, 3-4 Hasty Attack, 5-6 Deliberate Attack. Rolled a "2" and both sides started from the narrow sides of the table at length. The terrain was in the middle of the table.
|Confederate Start Positions prior to jumping off|
|The rebels approach the scrub brush|
|Yankees jump off towards the objective - the defensible ground in the middle of the battlefield|
|The rebels closed on the objective first and deploy for battle. Not enough time to go stationary. They'll all have to fight it out! This is what meeting engagements are all about!|
Here they come!
|The Killer Angels|
|The Yanks attack first. Driving off 2 Confederate Brigades, but their Right attacking Brigade is unsuccessful and is driven away.|
|The Rebels counterattack but were beaten back. You can see the Rebel Division Commander's Colors in the upper left and the "Battery Stonewall Jackson" Commanded by R. Emory Hayes IV of Georgia...|
|This Brigade was heavily involved on the Union Right flank but was driven off at the fence. Here they are behind Battery Jackson.|
