Thought I might polish off my rifle and get my regiment back in the field. Sent a courier message to the Rebel front and asked any willing Rebel commander to have his regiment meet us at Rucker's Field the following morning.

Well, after waiting all morning we finally saw a Rebel flag emerging from the woods. "Ok, boys! Here they come....Ready!....Ready!!!" In about an hour the poor Rebel lads slowly made it to our lines (attempting a Rebel Charge). We felt so bad for them that we gave them some water and had our cavalry ride them back to their tents. :)

Guess we must of picked off all the young/spunky ones already. ;o)

The Battle of Rucker's Field - Results:
DRAW

Casualties:
Union: 1 (due to laughter)
Rebels: 2 (heat exhaustion)


NOTE: Special Thanks to Col. Campbell for the pic. :)
