Hi R. Woods,

Sure, I'll see if I can help. Which scenario nr. is it? Are you North or South? Is the bridge (value) destroyed?

Key note here is that you need to be in column, limber or mounted formation to cross a bridge.

Check that first. If that does work I'll load your file and look to see what is happening.

If you're playing with the Bridge Limit and Repair Option on the bridge must be at a certain level for units to cross.

A bridge must have a strength of at least 1/4 the maximum to carry infantry units or dismounted leaders.
A bridge must have a strength of at least 1/2 the maximum to carry cavalry units or mounted leaders.
A bridge must have a strength of at least 3/4 the maximum to carry artillery or supply wagons.

Most games use 200 as Max so the bridge needs to be at 50 for infantry to cross.

that may be the issue there. the bridge looks fine and is at 100. I assumed that was 100 percent. everybody can cross but my artillery.
