Bridge over the River Howe
March has been drier and warmer than usual and the Federal Army has managed to throw a pontoon bridge over the River Howe. The Mars expedition is off for tonight so a small game is on. The Rebs have 8 regiments and 4 guns to over run 4 regiments and 2 guns before reinforcements can tip the balance. (8 more regiments and 2 more guns)
Due to the delicate nature of the bridge. Only 1 regiment can cross per turn. The earthworks are hasty in nature and count as cover not fortifications.
Federal Victory requires them to clear a road exit.
Confederate victory requires elimination of the bridgehead.
Any other result will be a stalemate.
