Game Notes
Harispe is aware that due to the late start of the battle he has no time to try anything clever.  He orders his corps to advance and engage the enemy
Elio does what the Spanish do best – he stands and waits.   With his corps in position he does not need to move any of his brigades.  He is hoping that his artillery will inflict some casualties before the French reach him.
