Double Line Dec, 28 2018 – Iuka battle Sept 1862

I'm writing this post with a tremendous delay but, only today I found the time to translate and to prepare it. 

Every years some of my club mates played an ACW battle using the rules wrote by Paolo Montinaro: double lines. It is a collaborative wargame system designed to play in group at division level.

This year the Confederates were lead by Valter as CiC (Little division) supported by Francesco (Maury division) and Alberto (Reserve division).  Franco Be. was the Unionist Commander while Paolo and Franco Bo. controlled respectively the north and south columns.

My mates decided to play part of Iuka battle. The real battle was fought in September 1862 (North Missisipi).

To support Bragg's Kentuky invasion, the Confederate troops have to defende the important railway junction of Iuka. The Unionist reaction does not wait ... the yankee move from Corinth in two columns to take the rebels between two fires.

The Unionist commanders start with a direct attack to reach quickly their obj

The second column on the right move slowly for a difficult terrain and a good defense line

At the end, on the left, a Confederate brigades is destroyed opening an hole into their lines allowing the blue jackets to arrive till Iuka suburbs
