A sudden realisation of the proximity of the main Confederate force led to Major Trump attempting a ruse de guerre. He managed to gather enough grey uniforms to outfit 2 units which he despatched under Captain Lambert to attempt a flanking attack by pretending to be the lead elements of the Confederate main force. Meanwhile the rest of his force, under his leadership, would attack and draw off the defending troops. That was the plan anyway.
The main force was delayed due to the severe movement penalty caused by an orchard (-1 pip per dice is bad if you keep rolling 1's and 2's). It took them 3 turns to get through, resulting in dawn arriving before they could get out of the trees.
Sequatchie was under curfew as the Confederates consolidated their hold. Faint noises were heard by the pickets, but no alarm was raised. The early dawn light changed that though as the guards saw blue uniforms in the orchard.
The Union plan was scuppered by three things. First up was the inability of the troops to move through the orchard. They came on slower than a slow thing. Then, once the flanking force was available, it's command counter only came out once in several turns. Flank attacks don't work if they don't actually get around the flank. Finally it was the uncontrolled volleys that spelt doom for the Union. Being unable to react to the appearance of the Confederate cavalry cost Colin with two rolls for groups breaking and one for a formation breaking costing him 5 force morale points.
The final score for the campaign was Major Major went from being an "Upstanding" officer to being a "Plucky" fellow and gained influence with his Corps commander. Major Trump started as "Outstanding" but is now seen as a "Likely" candidate, although with reduced influence at HQ. The Confederates ended up with 3 dead and 10 wounded out of 54 men, Union had 8 dead and 7 wounded out of 66 men, including the two Sequatchie militia units.
So there it is, a quick campaign resolved in 2 battles which made it simple for me. Maybe next time I'll get to play one.
Later folks, maybe with a picture or two of things I have painted.
