        • In brief (and apologies for my tardy remarks):

          -Leroy to reform in situ with Fawcett's praise for their stirring performance. They should be ready to continue their assault shortly against the exposed unit to their south.
          -Bates to reform in reserve, standing ready to go back in if either flank of Rainbow's thin position is threatened
          -RGC to retreat west instead of to Gardner, occupying the town west of Finch after Finch drops the bridge.
          -Gardner to prepare to move, but remain unlimbered and deployed at this time.

          -Bird's local command at Mt Catons reasserted
          -Jaeger and NCGG to conserve their fire as practical.
          Captain Khryses, Silver Star Omnilift Wing

          • 1040hrs, South to North:

            At General Fawcett's direction, most of Rainbow in the South reforms in place, warily eyeing the federal troops on the other side of the road, but neither side budges from their defensive positions, or in Rainbow's case, hasty defensive Works. The wounded of the Rainbow Guard begin to slowly aid each other in ambling for the Baltimore Pike bridge. Bates manages to reform his forces, and Leroy gets control of his Tigers, mustering them back into formation. Lt. Rojik refuses to be denied his glorious saber charge, however, and leads his sixty troopers directly at the nearest formation of Federal Infantry. Pitching into them, his men have become disorganized and strike them as a bit more of a mob than as the perfect knee to knee formation of sabers needed for the classic charge. The Federals however, are equally disorganized, unable to wheel in time, and the battle becomes pitched. Finally the Federal Infantry break to the rear, but the cavalry are in no shape to follow, with only thirty men remaining in the saddle, and Lt. Rojik only barely, considering bayonet wounds to his sword arm and his thigh.

            The Badgers continue to take pot shots at the Union infantry, Major Holden reluctant to leave his cover to trek back to the Elysville Road. After a couple of minutes of giving some very steady but devestatingly effective fire, the first 30lb shells crash into the trees, sending splinters flying. Taking their last shots at the union infantry now falling back into the cover of the town, the Badgers move out, scattering as they move to deny the artillery a clean shot, and the heavy shells go well wide of the darting and small targets.
