(HISTORICAL) -- BATTLE OF PRAIRIE GROVE, December 7, 1862 -- (5:00a) While Blunt's Kansas Division pulled back to the north end of Cane Hill after the battle, General Francis Herron was rushing to his aid at the head of his own division and that of Col. David Huston. Confederate commander Thomas Hindman originally planned to attack Blunt at Cane Hill and kicked off his offensive with the capture of Reed's Mountain on the 6th. Hearing of Herron's approach, Hindman changed his mind about Cane Hill and instead moved to attack Herron. Leaving a cavalry brigade to hold Blunt in place, Hindman moved towards Prairie Grove with three divisions. Around 5am the two cavalry brigades of Marmaduke's division, which were leading the advance, cleared a Federal roadblock at the Cane Hill Road-Hogeye Cutoff crossroads and continued north on the Cove Creek Road. The direct route to Prairie Grove was open. Historically, Blunt did not move until around 10am so in this version much of Blunt's division begins the scenario fixed.

The battle develops into a number of smaller ones, and there are many opportunities for maneuver, very interesting and challenging scenario.
