Fire and Fury

Our last game was an ACW game in 15mm using the Regimental Fire and Fury rules.

A bit of a meeting engagement with the Union attempting to secure a couple of crossroads. Both sides had reserves turning up to help out.

 Initially the Union had superior numbers but more Rebels were on the way.

 The Confederates moved up into the wood and the Union charged into them.
 The more numerous Union easily pushed the Rebels back.
Confederate reserves arriving just in time.

 The big Union regiments were proving hard to push back.
Rebel troops moving through the woods to the sound of the guns.

 The Rebels have another crack at pushing the Union away.
 But the result is the same again.
 The Confederates are all pushed back and the crossroads are now in real danger of being over run by the Union.

 The Rebels try yet another attack but still the Union hold.
 Union reserves are sent toward the other crossroads.

 The reserves meet each other on the other side of the wood.  But there is no going back for the Union.......
...... and the Confederates have no choice but to retreat away to fight another day.
