Sorry, I meant for the Anderson to Hill connections. A small arrow head at the end to denote it is one way would suffice.
it is only the Confederate Corp Commander to Confederate Army Commander (Lee) link which is one way
the Confederate General to Confederate Corp Commander is two ways
at least for now but if you think it should be one way then tell me why

Nope, leave it as is. But consider me one of the average players that likes to play lots of maps and if I have had this trouble understanding, consider the rest of the poor slobs. But, this is more for the game play side of the foundry. ;)

as I understood from this source and this this one Gregg was leading is division with the help of Custer's brigade (lower in rank)
that's why I put Gregg as higher officer

ok, sounds great. thanks for this great map!!!

well if you look more closely Wheatfield is on the map
between Sickles/Birney Peach Orchard and Sickles/Birney Cemetery Ridge
for the source thank you
I already used it as a base for this map

I see it. I mean to move it from between Sickles/Birney Peach Orchard and Sickles/Birney Cemetery Ridge to between SICKLES/BIRNEY Peach Orchad and MC LAW.

I think you should use battlefields for fightfields, because name of map is Field of Gettysburg, not Battlefield of Gettysburg.

well that would be geographically incorrect
as you can see here Wheatfield is situated between Peach Orchard and Little Round Top
it was Hood who attacked Wheatfield Road behind Sickles position in Peach Orchard as Mc Law attacked him frontally
so in my next version I'll move the Hood Devil's Den - Sickles/Birney Peach Orchard attack route
to Hood Devil's Den - Wheatfield Battlefield

Quick question as I know very little of this area. Was Gettysberg just a field? Is the name correct or would fields be better. Either way is fine.

my bad explaintation. I mean to move units that between unionist and confederate here will be Wheatfield.
pamoa wrote:it was Hood who attacked Wheatfield Road behind Sickles position in Peach Orchard as Mc Law attacked him frontally
so in my next version I'll move the Hood Devil's Den - Sickles/Birney Peach Orchard attack route
to Hood Devil's Den - Wheatfield Battlefield


much depends also from which hour will be your postions. this map shows how was situation shaped.

I choose the starting position for two reasons
first to reflect the error Sickles made not respecting Meade orders when he choose to place himself in a position impossible to hold
and second for the gameplay I have to lower the bonuses collectable in the Union stronghold behind the Battlefields

then (when I look at map which shows moves of armies and I read it right) Wheatfield was between unionist and confederates from the start.

do you think it is possible to made "active" map - so anyway to implement moves of armies?
