There was a short pause as both sides reordered their battle lines covered by their artillery. Red reopened the ball by moving forward the veteran Green Tigers infantry unit to sweep away the Bangor Volunteers with the bayonet, hoping to break through and rout the Blue army. To everyone's surprise the volunteers stood their ground and threw back the the overconfident attack with heavy losses.
The already battered Dover Fusiliers resumed the fight while the Tigers rallied. Unleashing a shattering volley they charged, driving the Volunteers back in disorder but failing to break them by 1 hit. The way forward was now open for Zinn's brigade.
It was now the 1st Infantry's turn. Pushing rapidly forward without pausing to fire, they threw themselves forward against the stone walls of the town, Brigadier Zinn at their head. Including supports the defenders outnumbered the attackers 3:2 and were bolstered by Brigadier Spye. It was a last forlorn hope.
Viewer's Choice Celebration MiniCampaign
It has now been over 20 years since I launched "With MacDuff On the Web" and nearly 10 years since I launched my 2 blogs: Gathering of Hosts and Battle game of the Month.
To celebrate the years and the friends and the million hits I've decided to run a 3 game mini-campaign in late October. By popular vot e it will be set in the mid 18th Century.
