After a quick change over (or it should have been quick but I was reading the map upside down when we were laying the hills) we were ready to start the next game, "The Wheatfield". I took control of the Union 3rd Corp 1st Division and Kiefer had control of three Confederate brigades from Hood's Division.
The Battlefield shown from the North's perspective the famous Wheatfield is top right. The main objective is the Stony Hill in the centre.
Graham's Northern Brigade advance in two lines, with the front line entering the woods in Skirmish formation.
The 40th New York are the first to come under fire in the Union first line near Stoney Hill.
The 1st Division Commander Birney (bottom right) keeps a watchful eye on his Left Flank Brigade Commander, De Troiband, who is rated poor and cautious.
Both Generals have to make a mad dash back to the Union second line situated on the road next to John Rose's farm as the Rebs manage to break through the Union
The Rebs push on, and start to cross the open terrain by the side of Stony Hill. The Union second line begins to pour heavy fire on the advancing grey hordes.
On the Union right flank the Union brigade under General Ward are faring better, with the Confederate attack slowing down due to having to traverse rough and marshy ground.
Although taking large casualties the Confederates attack an Union artillery battery and overun it and penetrate the Union second line. The rebs are in full control of the objective in the centre, Stoney hill. Birney orders Graham to charge the Stoney Hill but they are easily repulsed.
The advancing confederate Infantry have effectively cut the Union positions in two.
The second Union line on the left flank being cut off from the other two brigades begins to rout. With the Confederate troops being well in control of the centre objective the game ended. Therefore the score was now 1 game won each, with the decider played immeadiatley afterwards "Pickets charge".
