In the Cedar Mountain game, the Union was victorious, in part, due to an aggressive forward defense of the heights and an unrelenting artillery bombardment. The attacking Confederates reached their heavy casualties level before assaults on the high ground could begin. Casualties were one-sided with the Rebs suffering 40 stand losses to the Federals losing 16 stands.
In the Shiloh game, the Confederates again lost the battle but casualties were much more lopsided. While the Union only lost 6 stands, the Confederates lost 98! What a defeat! A string of good Volley and Bayonet rolls by the Federals followed by poor maneuver rolls by the Rebels caused a number of Confederate formations to break and abandon the battlefield. Needless to say (but I will anyway) the Confederate players were not pleased with the Shiloh outcome. I have pictures to post when time permits.
