Battle of Valverde…American Civil War..”I would give you my horse for another ford”

It would be another Brent spectacular event on Monday Military Miniature Madness!   He painted, based and labeled all the troops used and there was plenty of them.  Enough for 15 substantial commands!

It is New Mexico and the Confederates have advanced north for a shot at Colorado gold mines and California ports. The battle included not more than 3000 Union and 25oo Confederate troops, so the unit sizes were companies. Field of Honor rules were used and the scale was 15mm.

The Battle started with a small Union force holding the River Fords and strong Confederate forces advancing along the whole front. The fly in the buttermilk here is that the river (Rio Grande), is unfordable all along the line but for two small fords on the far Confederate right flank. It was a mini Fredericksburg. We had sharp battles of charging cav, columns of Infantry and massed 12lbers! Quite a fight!

 

Camby’s Advance. Note the small fords.
