Welcome to the first proper game of Two Splendid Lines, our 6mm regimental-focused ACW game! I think I'll let the pictures (properly captioned) do most of the talking. This was a small snapshot of the 4th Texas attacking the Federal positions on top of Turkey Hill at Gaines' Mill, June 27th 1862. As part of our campaign we are playing every battle in which the 4th Texas participated in, in order. We had a minor skirmish at Eltham's Landing last week, but this is the regiment's first pitched battle...
