Battle of Baltanas - Move 1

0800 to 0900

22 July 1813

Situation at the end of Move 1

Picton is deploying his corps in front of Baltanas

Hill is moving in column of march beyond the trees

Villate is deploying part of his corps to his right to meet Hill

Pictons corps fan out as they approach Baltanas

With no enemy cavalry on this flank, Hill moves his corps in column of march for maximum speed.

Rule Note

Troops in column of march can not fight or defend themselves, so it is a dangerous formation to use if there is enemy cavalry nearby
