~VARIATION~ You can attempt to fight a "What if" scenario of the same battle. What if MG Banks in Strausburg was able to send Col. Kenly reinforcements?
To play this what if battle add:
Col. George H Gordon's Brigade.
3rd Wis Inf 6 stands
27th In Inf 5 stands
2nd Ma Inf 6 stands
The 2th Pa Infantry of this battle was originally part of this brigade and when Banks finally got word of the battle from stragglers coming in, he considered sending the 3rd Wisconsin but changed his mind because of lack of information of the overall tactical situation. Instead, he ordered a general withdrawal towards Winchester further north.
