We had the usual 3 brigades of infantry each, but no cavalry. A general view of the table can be seen below.
The rebels are on the left and their task is to hold the line of the Ginseck Creek. The 'British' , which included a Hessian brigade, deploy with one brigade on each road. Each side had 1 good brigade commander, one average and one poor. A roll of the dice decreed that I would command the rebels and further rolls deployed my good commander on my left (the far end of the table in the picture), average in the centre and poor on the right. By chance Steve's dice came up with the same result, so each flank had a good commander (better chance of having more actions) against a poor one. Generally, I deployed my Continental infantry to cover the roads, except on my right where each continental unit was supported by a militia unit (this was to prove useful as the battle progressed). On the central hill were two units of militia with a third in support and a gun.
