Behold, great news from the front, today we rejoice in the victory of Colonel Thaddeus P. Scrivener of XIth Brigade whose troops today repelled a large force of Confederates under Colonel Barksdale who had advanced as far as Woodwards Farm in Kentucky and had prepared their positions to repel us.
Seeing the enemy dispositions and noting their weakness our hero, Colonel Thaddeus P. Scrivener, deployed the 8th Ohio infantry and 12 Battery of the Ohio Light Artillery to screen the enemies front while he took the head of the 14th Ohio Infantry, 3rd West Virginia Infantry and 1st West Virginia Cavalry in a flanking manoeuvre.

|Our brave troops push on|
Thaddeus P. Scrivener is a true hero of our times. On to Nashville!
|The Barksdale is outflanked|
In terms of Longstreet:
We played the Walled Farm engagement with myself as the attacker while the Confederates under James were the defenders.
For reasons known only to himself, James set himself up back from the walls, so I took the opportunity to screen with one regiment and my guns while the rest of my force advanced around and then into the wooded area on his flank.
|The union screen takes its position|
|Artillery supports our brave boys|
I also managed to kill both of the Confederate 6-pdr cannon with rifle fire.
|Tempted from the safety of the wall our screen advances on the foe.|
|Things are looking bad for Barksdale|
The pictures are a little dark, the lighting is not so good at the White Hart.
