Black Friday American War of Independence Game

Played a small AWI game using Black Powder against my brother.  I had the British attacking across a bridge and ford against the defending Americans.

View from the British end of the table.

View from the American end of the table.

The Grenadiers come under fire as they advance.

The Grenadiers had broken, leaving the following regulars to clear out the defenders.

The American lines.

Light Dragoons clash in the village.

British Highlander and Light Brigade come over the hill.  - finally.

On the American left.

Fighting over the fields on the American left.

The British left.

Things are still undecided at this point.  Both sides have had a few battalions quit the field. 2 for the Americans, 3 for the British.

The Americans win the initiative on the next turn after their move and fire.  The two rounds of combat on the British are punishing breaking the loyalist cavalry and the Highlanders.  With the breaking of these two units the British army is forced to surrender the field.
