I had taken the opportunity to reinforce the Confederate left flank. So there we were, poised to assault the strong Yankee position on the ridge. No pressure then.
However, when we looked up, the enemy were in full flight!
Hardly daring to believe our luck, a general advance was ordered.
As we all know, however, Lee was then free to march on a now undefended Washington, arriving just after Lincoln took ship and fled to see refuge in the Old World. Full recognition of the Confederate States of America soon followed from Great Britain, France, Prussia and of course Forbodia.
An absolutely splendid game, this has given us an appetite for big multi-player games. I am hoping to run an ACW game in Sheffield next year. And then there's the Tannenberg idea....
Generals Longstreet and Lee celebrate their victory with some flag waving.
