Muskets & Tomahawks at Barrie's

The M&T campaign day planned was postponed due to ill-ness of too many people.  Jim & John fought a friendly to test one of the up-coming campaign missons.
Jim's French Canadians are deployed to stop a British convoy from crossing the table from right to left.  The French have 2 militia units in the centre & an Indian unit on each flank.  The British have regulars on the road, light infantry on tier right & Indians on their left.  The convoy of pack mules & civilians is still off table,
After French lose both their Indian units in 1 on 1 fights, their militia is outflanked on both flanks and doomed.

Quick and decisive.

Yes it certainly was. Once the Indians on both flanks had decided to head back to the lodge to see how the squaws were going with the knitting, the Canadians were out flanked on both sides. The could not safely leave their patch of woods without risking a close range volley from the Brit Regulars so ended up standing still. In hindsight maybe they should have withdrawn and then returned but in this scenario there was also a time limit.
