Black Powder ' Battle of Many Creeks" AWI 28mm

British forces under Cornwallis move into a heavily defended area in Virginia in the delta region of the Carolinas. Loosely affiliates Privateers and Militia with Three battalions of Spanish allied infantry operated in opposition. The privateers operated as bloodthirsty war bands with untested stamina. Together the 5 bands were enough to catch the Queens Rangers 1st Regiment in March Column causing sufficient damage to force a retreat and hold off and defeat the 1st British Legion Cavalry Regiment. The British Highlanders never got to grips as the British Legion infantry were routed by a charge of the Spanish Grenadiers and a unit of Virginia Militia

A fog spread across the battle field as The Second Legion cavalry with a light cannon attached arrived n the rear area.  The American Cavalry commander upset with A Spanish attempt at early glory refused to advance even when the American C-in-C attempted to get him to follow orders.

The game opened with a British Blunder move by the Elite Highland Brigade that took it directly to the right into its own British Legion loyalist regiments! Perhaps next time its one move should be considered as disorder in all brigades penetrated by the movement.

Pictures to follow.............
