The Federals continue to push forward. The Regiment that failed to move forward in turn 1.
continues to lag behind.

"Maybe we should go around it, Sir." Replied the Major.
"I'm not sure we can, building are not listed in the training manual." Said the Colonel.
|The Federal General notices a regiment lagging behind. |
He does the equivalent of a 19th century "facepalm."

Zeke's Battery continues to hammer away with their Napoleons and 3" ordnance guns.
The lead Federal regiment takes casualties.
|Turn 4. Rebel Initiative. General Lewis keeps his men in place.The Federal Battery prepares to move forward..|
