English Civil War
v. Mark's Parliamentarians
Parliament lined up conventionally with cavalry on the wings & infantry in the centre coveirng the whole field. But the King's men deployed entirely on their right with cavalry in reserve behind their left.
In the Royalist centre, they had pikes in the central wood, but they advanced out of it & the Roundhead cavalry recoiled back. Royalist musketeers entered the other wood to face off the Roundhead dragoons for the duration.
The Royalists tried to send some cavalry across from their left, but it was too late & it only rode to its doom as the Royalist left collapsed into chaos.
