Long overdue wrap up on the game.
Since the fighting at the Railroad Bridge and northern fords had devolved into ineffective firefights, I played the Truex-Gordon fight for the last three turns.
Gordon was able to flank Truex and force a retreat to cover the Washington Road Turnpike. The Confederates enveloped individual Federal units and, while taking fire casualties to units in one hex, were able to bring overwhelming odds to bear for close-combats.
Truex’s regiments took a terrible beating. If I had kept track of Brigade Effectiveness, I’m sure they would have been rendered incapable of offering any resistance. As it was, without the book keeping, they were rendered incapable of offering any resistance. Note the similar outcome. Note I did not have to act like a bloody accountant (Sorry Tim).
On the other hand, the Federals had prevented any Rebel units from exiting the map.
I’d call it a draw. Good game.
