Alternatively - as a precursor (I don't know how easy this is to do) you could have an overall "Naploeon's" empire type thing... with specific battles locations etc...
Then as you see fit you could do each battle in minute detail (like this one?)
(Then I can pretend to be Sharpe again!!!)

^ you know you want to add this!!
do it like an ancient map where generals oversaw the battle with (wit pions for each division and even a hand and ruler )

Peons are pawns or underlings used for whatever purposes suit their master/commander (in this case the commander is a field marshal).
I was one of the few who voted to use the battle lines like Pearl Harbor. I realize we are in a renaissance of sorts - with the boon in map production (especially, non-traditional ones), but I don't feel this would be as good once converted to a traditional map.

If a unit is attacked from the flank (with enemy units on two sides OR attacked from East or West since the battle lines are arrayed north/south) then they are enfilladed, which would require say a -1 modifier on their highest defense roll. This would reflect their inability to bring all their guns to bear on their target,
This was standard tactics in the firearms era and produced collossal casualties when executed correctly. There are other possiblities I could suggest, but this would be one of the easier ones to implement.
