|the grand advance of the American forces|
In this case, a ACW scenario by Paul Stephenson for the Battle of Raymond found in an old wargaming magazine (bathroom reading) was the catalyst for the fictional encounter. I will play it out over the next few weeks. The following are a few pictures (albeit poor) of the game.

|The U.S. 28th (foreground) and 17th Inf. Regts. moving to the ford on right flank|
|the Perry British version (sans one set of horses/rider)|
|The main British defensive line|
I have the next two weeks off for the holiday break but really intend to work hard in getting lots of painting in for a few fellow wargamers whose work is much over due. I might just try to get some of my pile done too!
