Week two begins

Week two is off to a good start. Eleven of the 12 students arrived, five of whom are returnees, so I have some experience going for me. The contest pits a strong Union force of attackers against a determined group of Confederate defenders. In the pre-game comments I exhorted the Rebs to be defensive. So, of course, they immediately set out to attack the men in blue! This has had some very negative results this far. The picture to the right (click on it to enlarge) shows the Union right flank.

The picture to the left shows an aggressive John B. Hood marching forward to secure the road intersection. We'll see how that works out.

This picture shows the Union left flank. Here the Confederate player is following direction and just trying to hold back the blue masses. He has taken some casualties from artillery fire, but the Yanks have yet to cross the river.
