Night attack on the Truman line


After their sucess at the crossroads, the rebs launch an all out assault on Jacksonville. Wary of the enmy firepower they decide to go for a night attack

The formidable Truman line guards the approaches to the city, guns at the ready 


Tenting tonight: most of the yankees are asleep, and will only wake up if the sentries sound the alarm 

The confederates approach stealthily in the dead of night

The sentries walk about the perimeter, but they don't see anything amiss

One of them is even silently dispatched

Wait, what's that?

Johnny reb is here, sound the alarm!

A crashing southern volley anihilates the left union gun

The northern forces wake up and begin to stream from their tents
The other federal cannon opens up on the enemy

Under fire, some confederates break and fall back

Now the entire federal line opens up a terrific fire

Wich is answered in kind by the enemy

Undaunted by massive losses, the southerners launch a rebel yell and charge the redoubts
Scattered fire ravages the federal right flank
A second unit attacks the central redoubt
Contesting the objective
As the confederate colonel seizes an objective, battle ends. With one point apiece and the central redoubt being fought over the assault ends in a draw.
