When the news reached the Origawn Provisional Government that the Dominion had launched an expedition against the Q'ree, they had ordered General Lannigan to launch an attack into Dominion territory to draw off some of the pressure on their allies. When the Origawn cavalry reached Pine Ridge, they found a scratch force of Dominion infantry and artillery blocking the ridge. Lannigan ordered an immediate attack!
|Grey's Brigade, supported by cavalry and artillery, attacked up the North Road.
|Along the North Fork, Colonel Nolan's Black's Black Hat Brigade attacked on the far right where Dominion cavalry had arrived to extend the line while General Strombecker led his men straight up the road to deliver the fatal blow.
|Just as the Dominion line began to waver, the 5th Royal Scots arrived, pipes wailing and deployed at the double, filling the gaps. The fight was on!
