|Action at Porto Paquento|
To right a recent injustice, a punitive for force sets out in search of vengeance. In support of the main expedition inland, the Galveston Expeditionary Force (GEF) is given the task of securing the port at Porto Paquento from which supplies can be off-loaded. The GEF is composed of two companies of the New Orleans' Greys, one company of Alabama Red Rovers, and one 4lb gun. Rumors are that Porto Paquento is lightly defended by several under strength Mexican line companies.

For Game 2, we reset the scenario and swapped sides. The game began with both sides advancing into Porto Paquento but thereafter the game had few similarities to Game 1. The Mexicans brought everyone onto the north side of the river very quickly via the bridge and deployed.

Thus ended the days' exploits. Two skirmishes with two outcomes.
