Previous posts have described the first two days of our Megagame...We regrouped on the Sunday morning for the third and final day's gaming. The table was rearranged into a more conventional rectangle, albeit a large one 18' x 8'!

Overnight, and in the morning as we reset the table,it was agreed that we would attempt the latter option of concentrating on Pickett's charge, if only for the sake of recreating this most iconic of actions!
However, as the first few moves unfolded, a misunderstanding between the two teams, or perhaps even within the Confederate team, meant that we did not really achieve either of the options available for the infamous 'Pickett's Charge'; neither the 'carbon copy' centered around the Copse of Trees Sector, nor the wider outflanking move to test other options available to Lee, with the whole battlefield, and with all units and reserves in play.....

|Oh Dixie! What might have been...|
Which reminds me - thanks to those members of the public who stopped by and showed an interest and complemented us. It was much appreciated!
