I started with only Cleburne's brigade of Confederates, but as I laid them out I found that I have the whole "Corps" for Hardee.

Or Ruggles, since a more than curious glance at the battle shows it was Pond's brigade that Wallace ran into initially, not Cleburne's.

This will be an up close and person fight: in TCHAE, smooth-bore (SB) muskets have a range of 4". As far as I can determine, both sides were armed in this manner at this battle.
