Four EvsE Personalities At Battle of Schaumburg

10 October 1759/2009 Battle of Schaumburg. The 4th BIG Battalion BAR game hosted by Der Alte Fritz of Hesse-Seewald. Click on photographs to enlarge them.

Extreme Gallian left flank. Tagewerben was successfully taken by The Fischer Legion and two battalions of the Brigade of Lt. Gen. Armentieres. Near is a portion of 2/Berry. In Tagewerben is 2/Royal Roussillon. Hesse Seewald forces successfully prevented any further Gallian advance from here.

2/Royal Roussillon tangling with Hesse-Seewald Jagers armed with pesky rifles. Both units have earned "elite"status since 1755/2005 in our BAR games.

View from the Gallian left flank. The Pratzen Heights blocks your view of the Gallian center and right flank.

Behind the center you see Gallian Commander in Chief, Lieutenant Général Chevert on a light grey horse. Other EvsE personalities are atop one of our Victory Monuments.

Viewing the battle:

Frankzonia's Hurtszhog in a dark blue coat with associates, Count l'Beauchamp in light green and 'lMarquise de Hottatrot with raised sword. Tradgardland's premier diplomat von Bergmann in a Polish crimson justaucorps. How and when did von Bergmann arrive on the continent?
Wonderfully fun. Der Alte orchestrated a terrific game!
