ACW Barlow’s Knoll-Gettysburg Day (April 2015)


Early’s Attack on Barlow’s Knoll at Gettysburg 1863-Day 1

This game organized by Jason.


This was a Confederate victory.
The Union forces were attacked by superior Confederate forces by in number and morale.

But the Union brigades put up a tough fight, holding off the Confederate right and delaying the advance of the Confederate left by a stiff defence in the centre. Two of thee Union batteries poured devastating fire onto the Confederate right with the help of a Union regiment hidden in the woods.
