I would assault the village on the left with the remaining infantry units. I also took the cavalry in order to flank the town. I choose to keep one Infantry unit off board as a reserve. We had to inform the ref where it would enter, and to our surprise it kept the Canadian Militia units troops on our right flank holding their position in case it came storming out of the woods on the right edge of the table.
The Canadian militia commanded by Paul Smith and Stephen St-John were two near equal forces from the colonies, formerly known as Upper and Lower Canada. Since Confederation these are now the provinces of Ontario and Quebec. Both of the Canadian commanders had 3 companies of Infantry (8 figures each). The Lower Canada units were all from Montreal and included a unit of artillery and deployed on our right. The Upper Canadians provided the Cavalry (4 figures) and faced me. The Canadians deployed on their entire length of the table.

The Battle develops and the fighting becomes hot and heavy. The camera is put aside. The Lower Canadians hold onto their hilltop, waiting to engage any Fenians who force march out of the woods. They have been kept out of the battle and when they begin to advance. It has come too late.
