What We Need
We need a detailed OB for the battle going down to the 450 man unit. Kriegsspiel calls them “Half Battalions”. I find that in the American Civil War, this usually translates into Regiments. Regardless what they are called, we are looking for approximately 450 units. Cavalry usually goes down to 150 man squadrons. Depending on the numbers involved, we sometimes bump this up.
Put this together into a spreadsheet. Please use this format as an example:
Send it to us in an email.
I’ll compile and post the first draft here. That way, we can get lots of eyes on it for corrections and adjustments. If you see something that needs to be changed, please comment below.
