Week three, day four

The second battle ended in yet another French victory.  Though it cost them many casualties, the companies assigned to delaying the British reinforcements did just that.  In the meantime, again at great cost, the French were able to take one side of the fort and had men inside at game's end.  The artillery was moving up, the works outside the fort had been taken and so the requirements for victory were met.

To make sure that everyone got to see lots of action in the final game, we set it up so that there were six battles within the battle; six separate objectives and twelve separate commands to try to meet them. 

I have learned a lot about the rules and the students have learned the basics pretty well.  I have enjoyed having each and every one of them in the class.

Here are just two shots from today.  Click on the picture to enlarge it.

In the second game, most of the action centered around the attack on the fort.

In our third and final game, everyone was involved and the engagments were fierce.
