|A close up of my midsection with the accompanying Freikorp hussars and the Death's Head Hussars of the Prussian army.|
|Andy and Martin's French cavalry deploys.|
|The freikorps hussars have fallen back while the Death's Head hussars had broken and evaporated by going toe-to-toe with French heavy cavalry. Here two regiments of infantry turned to face a flanking threat... which seems to have disappeared.|
|The French brigades are all over the field with only one Prussian infantry brigade to oppose them, or so it seems.|
Well, one should be enough.
|A French battery threatens a dragoon regiment and the over-all commander while a Prussian freikorp regiment goes up against the French line. There were other troops there.|
The little red bead meant the unit had used it's first fire special rule. This could only be used once.
|Now the gun is gone and so are the dragoons. Von Zeiten attempts to rally the cuirassiers|
and the Prussian infantry appears to be giving as good as they get.
|French grenadiers and the cavalry reserve advance late in the game.|

Here's a sampling. It's nice to see in the day, but less so at night in a construction zone with heavy traffic.
|On the Interstate going north from Hazleton to Scranton|
|The mountians go from horizon to horizon. The chain extends from Quebec to Georgia.|
|Our GPS can show us the elevation; here it's 1540 feet.|
|Looking at the hillside outside of the supermarket. I was raised this sort of view all around me. There was a strip mine less than a kilometre from my house... and our home was heated with a coal furnace.|
|Once again the GPS give us our elevation on the way back to Ontario near the New York-Pennsylvania border.|
|... and we gathered provisions that are unavailable in Canada. Tastykakes are a Philadelphia product and Little Debbie snacks come out of Pittsburgh. (They ARE available in Canada.) Lance crackers are not found north of the border. Birch beer is a carbonated soft drink/soda/pop that uses birch root rather than the sassafras used in root beer. It's an aquired taste but on I really enjoy... and again, one not available where I live in Canada.|
