On Saturday we refought One of the Cavalry Engagements that Made up the Battle of Brandy Station

The Troops are from the Collection of Brad Smith
Painted by Brad and myself

All 40mm

The Confederate Horse soldiers had clashed earlier in the morning but a large force of Union Cavalry had moved around the flank to surprise the Confererates, They almost succeeded and this is where our Battle commenced -

The Union had first Turn and proceeded aggressively towards the Confederates

The Confederates charged the Union Cavalry but the larger Union units checked the headlong charges also inflicting casualties from long range cannon fire to the outflanking troops on the hill, it looked dire for the Confederates

But the whimsies of battle turned and the Confererates in one turn achieved supremacy and all looked worse for the struggling Union
but it did not last and at the end The Brave Confederate troops who had fought for 4 hrs where swept aside and it was a valiant victory for the Union Forces

Once again words cannot do this post any justice. This is brilliant. Poetry on a table!
