We had no scenario before we got together so on arrival we threw together a terrain, put together the armies and just played a straight up scrap.
The forces were even: 18 infantry regiments a side, two of cavalry and six batteries (although the Confderates had an extra battery to take account of their four gun batteries to the Union six gun batteries). We had three Confederate and two Union players.
We started play at ariund 11:00am. The images here are in no particular order, just a capture of the day.
The Union, on whose side I played, did well at first, roughly handling the Conferderate centre with massed artillery. Then on my flank I forced back a significant attack, while on the opposite flank we had some gains.
Then things started to go wrong. Attrition started to play against a few units and we lost them. Then we lost a critical combat in the wood on our right, that gave the Confedrates a toe hold there.
When two of my units were destroyed the rot really set in and soon one of my brigades completely disintegrated. A brigade on our right also disolved and the game came to an end at around 3:30.
For a quickly set up game it was a lot of fun, but it was good to get home to that cold beer on this hot day.
