Off to a good start

We were able to get three games in this month. The first two were actually a continuation of the same battle. AGW set in the AWI. The King's men were a bit slow to advance but after taking some casualties were able to inflict enough damage on the Americans to force them off the fence however the were unable to bring them decisive defeat.
