|Turn 1. The Federal Brigades took there time getting ready. They made a lot of noise in the trees.|
The Confederates knew that the battle was upon them when two brigades emerged from the tree line to their front.
|General Mark and his Virginia Brigade set up on the hill with Duncan's Battery.|
|General Michael places his field glasses back in their case. Satisfied with the set up, he produces his pipe from his coat. He lights it and slowly puffs. The adjutant asks if he should give the order. The General only nods in approval.|
|The long roll is beat on the drum as the men in blue move forward.|
|The Rebs make ready and hold their fire.|
|"Johnny, look at all them purty blue uni-forms." said Elias.|
"Don't worry Elias, in about 15 minutes they will close enough for you to get a real good look at them." said Johnny.
|The Federal Left Flank advancing. General Bill with his brigade|
|By the third turn it was obvious once the Federals cleared the woods that they were pushing on the Confederate Right Flank.|
|two regiments broken and retreating. One already crossed to the opposite bank of the river. General Steven decides to hold|
his remaining men on the reverse side of the hill. Taking a page out of Ol' Stonewall's playbook.
|General Steve holds the fresh brigades in place. None have fired their first volley yet. The deadliest contest is about to begin.|
|"Press on men!!! The rebel scum is skedaddling!!"|
|"Is it over yet?"|
