Onur took on the command of the CSA forces, while I took the command of USA forces. In summary, I lost, as I underestimated the strength of the Confederate forces. Onur focused on Gettysburg and the heights immediately behind it, while I permitted myself to be check by Longstreet's threat to my flanks. As a result my center was not sufficiently held and buckled under the attack of four CSA divisions. Attempts to fix the situation by, many times desperate, counter attacks failed. A convincing CSA victory to my shame.

The USA line along the Peace Orchard ridge. They were in the wrong place.
A massive, and as it turned out unstoppable, assault by four Confederate divisions on Cemetery Hill, Seminary Hill, and Culps Hill is prepared.

Desperate Union counter-attacks fail!
I also totally forgot to make a post for the previous game of our Thunder in the West BBB Campaign. We played Chickamauga at the club. Onur and Nacho commanded the CSA forces, while I and Mustafa took command of the USA. Briefly both me and Onur decided on flanking each others axis of advance. My flanking manuver worked. His did not. A victory for the USA. The next two games are Champion Hill and Nashville. You can see the video AAR here.
