Jonathan http://palousewargamingjournal.blogspot.com/ kindly asked me if I would like to join Matt http://wargamesinthedungeon.blogspot.com/ via Zoom and play the third game in as many days of his Shoemakers Bridge August1777 scenario. If you follow Jonathan's blog you will know it was an offer you could not refuse.
If you pop over to Jonathan's blog he has written up a report of the first of these series of games, it will be interesting to see how the different players approached the challenges to both protagonists of this excellent scenario.
I will not go into great detail and steal Jon's thunder, my plan was to give the tyrants troops a bloody nose before retiring. Emboldened by early successes I probably hung around a while longer than was prudent, however the militia holding Shoemakers Farm did sterling work tying down several British battalions in what turned out to be a mini Le Haye Sante.

I await the butchers bill from Jon but I assume a strategic if somewhat bloody victory for the British.
A most enjoyable three hours, though it did not seem that long, Jonathan and Fields of Honor AWI rules ensuring a flowing and engaging game.
Once again my thanks to host Jonathan and my opponent Matt.
