The Battle of Elington – Part 1

Turns 1 to 8 - 9.00 am to 12.30 pm

Just another peaceful day at the picturesque town of Elington, Virginia – or is it?

Kearny “The Magnificent” leads his Division over the Stone Bridge at the start of the battle.

The Rebs occupy Round Top (where are the 20th Maine when you need em’?)

A P Hills’ Division make a cunning move behind Avery’s Ridge – are they planning on crossing Cartharpen Run?

A P Hill’s artillery passes the Dunker Church in the rear of the Divisional column.

Ewell’s Divisions begin to deploy near Pitt’s Hill under long-range fire from Randolph’s Rifled Battery at Elington – time about 11.30 am.

A lone Rebel scout surveys the battle scene from the Wooding Farm.
