Yes, an army fights on its stomach. Pickett was last arriving because of the trains, I believe waiting to be relieved by Imboden's cavalry. Of the trains, part of it would seem to be that of Johnson's Division which seriously delayed I Corps units getting to the front because they were behind it goi...

Lee believed he would defeat the AotP, not that he would need the roads to retreat by. The results of the battle made them important once the battle was completed, had the CSA been victorious they perhaps turn south for Taneytown? Fight the fight and let the forces decide how and where the battle fl...

Occupying the position would seem to be benefit enough If it's of such importance to the field of battle. I'm looking at the map for HPS Gettysburg "!HISTORICAL 1. The Battle of Gettysburg - July 1 - 3, 1863". There are 13 objective hexes, two CSA and 11 USA. The hex at the Hagerstown Road...

"Objectives are important, and should be a guide as to how the battle should be fought."? Perhaps not everyone agrees with being guided as to "how the battle should be fought". Why not just ask my opponent what he'd like me to do in order to guide how I should fight?

I'm inclined to agree with General Hulinsky, although custom scenarios do tend to make things a bit more balanced if designed well enough. Many of the scenarios in HPS Gettysburg or HPS Chickamauga seem to favor one side or the other. My biggest complaint with victory conditions lie with objective h...

Doesn't north and south reverse once you go below the equator, i.e. the closer to the equator the farther south you are? :wink:

General McOmish <salute> Brigadier General "Deano" Martin and I have completed our battle (015 SR_Murfreesboro (H)). As always, General Martin was a game opponent with good banter and excellent turnaround times (109 turns in about 30 days!). In the end, Nicodemus was not to be denied and t...

Gentlemen <salute> If I might add to General Hulinsky's post. Before anyone goes "Gettysburg, geez another one?" it might be mentioned that the battle doesn't take place in Pennsylvania. It takes place in Virginia with the Bull Run/Manassass battlefields included in the area, although the ...
