As the forces advanced on each other and began to deploy into line, it seemed to be a race to see who could get there last as they kept failing command rolls. Eventually the lines where deployed and engaged. The Union looked like it had the upper hand with weight of fire, but then a charge by the Confederate right swept away the Union line and they had no choice but to disengage and begin a retreat to Jacksonville.

Club Night 1st January
Three of us gathered for chilly evening at the hut. Bob played the Union forces and Steve K the Confederates, while I umpired the battle of Olustree. I have uploaded this to the Black Powder Yahoo group if you are interested.
