The day did not start to well for me, my initial assault against the union positon was bloodily repulsed. The wooded terrain and the inability to find firing positions for my artillery prooving troublesome. John, advancing from the northern edge found his advance hampered as the union had felled trees across the tracks, the -2 on his manouver rolls and an inability to roll over 3 on the dice some his divisions repeatedly not moving. Just when I began to make some headway I found my right flank come under attack from fresh union forces, evenutally having to throw my reserve division into the fray to check their assaults.
I've added a few pictures of the battle so far, next week will see a continuation of the batlle and I promise to add more photos.
