The Confederates put their Artillery, Timberclad Landship, an Elite squad of Zouves, a regular Infantry Squad, two Armored Walkers, and Major jubilation T. Cornpone on the eastern section of the board. The western section contained three units of Infantry, three Mechanical Men, Captain Smith, Big John, and the Ornithopter.
I let each side set up their section of artillery and a squad of regular Infantry up to 12 inches from the road. While the Confederates set up their squad in some woods, they set up their artillery near the back of the table (where it was constantly firing at long range and was often blocked by intervening friendly units).
The Union forces put one of their squads in the woods on their left (seen here leaving the woods, to fall back to them the next turn). Their section of guns was set up on a hill on their right. There it had a clear field of fire and kept the Confederates under constant fire (though they later took severe levels of causalities due to their open position. On their left they placed two squads of Infantry, two Ironmen, and the Heliostat. In the center they placed their strongest landship, the USLS Marion. On their right the put their remaining landships and the rest of their Infantry. Note, Colonel "Popeye" Doyle on horseback near the front lines.
Was this the end of the Confederate left flank? What could they do without Cornpone's leadership? Stay tuned for the next installment (this AAR is to damn long to do as one post).
