June 2 2012,
We all four returned for our next play.
Steedman div, bg D.McCook bgd takes a fatigue and builds breastworks in front of bg Scott cav bgd, mg Pegram div, mg Forrest cav corp, in order to secure the NW passage to Rossville. This action will remain for the next four turns.
For those of you wondeing how come mg Forrest doesn't do more.
There are Pre-Bragg chits you hve to pull for each days battle or DD met.
Well Forrest pulled a camp chit and must spend the remaining turns of the 18th one AM at a time just crossing the Chickamauga.
The rest of Steedman div, 2 bgds heads south to try and cover the other 2 main roads leading north to Rossville. As they are well aware that Bg Minty cav bgd having failed to blow up Reeds bridge will not hold up 2 divs of mg Hood/Longstreet corp.
Bg Wilder out of command detachment 82In, 123Ill leaving 18In lt arty are also heading south to stem the tide.
bg Minty will suffer almost complete annihilation for his action,
Union losses, Minty killed, 7Pa & Chbdt arty eliminated, 4Mi collapsed, 4USb 1loss &4USa 2loss all 3 routed and Wilder 72In routed
Rebel losses, 50Tn eliminated, 10Tn routed, 3Tn 2loss
bg Wilder bgd, is holding up mg Liddell entire div, mg Walker Res corp, Having destroyed Alexander bridge built breastworks at Alexander ford and now covering his right from bg Bates, mg Stewart div, mg Buckner corp.
Can you do anything more?
Mean while the divs of mgs Wood & VanCleve, mg Crittenden corp, are heading for thier own troubles. As mg Buckners whole corp is setting up in front of them.
Steedman still heading south to meet with Hoods corp
Having sucessfully dealt with Minty cav bgd Hoods boys regroup and start heading north.
Wilder starts to feel the presure from 2 sides now and fatigues himself to a 0.
Crittenden corp answers Buckner corp .
by strenghting his line and building breastworks
At the top right of the pic mg Polk corp, mg Hindman div are trying to complete thier DD and must then draw thier Pre-Bragg chit.
Well thanks to CSW forum, post 69, Oct 20 1999, we have an answered to the mg Palmar div dilemma and are appling it. Once his DD is satisfied he will be free to do as he wishes.
Steedman makes a decision and turn east to take the high ground at 2 points and sending the bulk (bg Whitaker), of 2 bgds further south with the 2 artys.
Having been flanked from across the river by bg Govan bgd, mg Liddell div, mg Walker res corp, Wilder moves turns and confronts bg Bates bgd, mg Stewart div, mg Buckner corp, with bad results and good results, fatigue 1, but creating a hole to escape from.
Meanwhile Buckner corp is forming up for something?, right in front of Crittenden corp.
Enter mg Negley div, mg McCook corp.
see you soon
