Here are some shots of a large confederate attack on a set union position from a 2 v 2 we recently played... I tried to convey the story of this flank of the battle, which AMAZINGLY the Union held, despite the entire flank at one point collapsing in rout except for two units of New Jersey infantry and the 5th New York, which had been sent as last second reinforcements... they held JUST long enough for the Union troops to reform in the woods and counter attack to victory.
First Attacking Confederate Corps (Lee commanding)
Second Attacking Confederate Corps (Longstreet commanding
Defending Union Corps, 1st US Sharpshooters to the front
Confederate forces advancing
Confederate forces moving into position to attack
Confederate 1st Corps attacks!
Second Confederate Corps sweeps behind 1st Corps and attacks the weakened Union right
The Union commander desperately sends reinforcements to the Union right...
View as the Union Commander of the reenforcements get into position, but can they hold...?
No. Under heavy attack from two southern Corps, the Union collapses in rout
The reminants of first and second CSA Corps reform
Four regiments from Hood's Texas Brigade prepare to join the reminents of 1st and 2nd Corps to send the Union defenders packing
Hood's Brigade turns to attack
Amazingly, the Union forces reform and their valiant men somehow see the massed CSA attack off, leaving just these men... notice the huge fields of dead on the far flank, as well as in the forest, where the Union troops made a desperate, last, successful stand!

That was a pretty good impression, tho.
"We feel that our cause is just and holy; we protest solemnly in the face of mankind that we desire peace...all we ask is to be left alone; that those who never held power over us shall not now attempt our subjugation by arms." -Jefferson Davis
