Battle of Valladolid - Move 1

0800 to 0900

19 July 1813

Situation at the end of move 1

Villate moves part of his garrison out of Valladolid to cover the approach of Vidal’s corps (top) from Duenas

On the left Wellington and his 1st corps approach behind their cavalry screen.

Villate has his corps in place to hold Wellington at bay until Vidal can come to join him.

Rule Note

The French deployment outside of Valladolid delays Wellington’s approach, because his brigades can not make multiple moves when within 16” of the enemy

Vidal is not affected by this rule, because there are no enemy troops at the top of the table, where he is approaching.
