BattlefieldThe battlefield is 4’ x 4’, with any suitable terrain. There can be a hill or other commanding feature in the center.
DeploymentThe Union army deploys first, up to 6cm onto the table on any table edge, and can split up their force any way they choose among the table edges.
The Confederate army then deploys everything but their two Cavalry units anywhere in a 24cm square in the center of the table with their units facing any direction they wish. They must at this point choose which board edge leads to their retreating army, which they will try to break through to reach. They must also at this point choose a board edge which their cavalry will arrive in reserve from. Finally, they may place one line of linear obstacles anywhere entirely in their deployment zone, representing them being dug in for the prior battle.
