The 2nd South Carolina opens fire upon the Irish Brigade, just out of shot to the left. In the middle distance Duryea's New York Zouaves clash with a Virginia regiment. An increasingly demoralized Union general watches in the background. Picture taken during a game at New Buckenham on January 2nd.
No episode today, folks. I've just completed and mailed the latest batch of forms for my visa application; that headache plus one or two other things has scuppered my day, today. Hopefully all will proceed well tomorrow.
The club is putting on a big ACW game tomorrow evening, and I shall be fielding most of Kershaw's brigade (McLaw's Div., Longstreet's Corps, Army of Northern Virginia). It'll be the first time the four South Carolina regiments have seen action together since I painted them all up. We'll be using Rally round the flag rules as usual, a set I particularly like as they give the right period feel to a game. The South shall rise again!
