Game Notes
The French CinC arrives on the battlefield

O’Donnell has only one brigade to continue his attack, the guerrilla’s.   They are useless at skirmish and firefight, so he has to order them to charge.  

The Italian brigade already has two casualties, but with superior skirmish and volley fire they are equal to the guerrilla’s.

The first round of melee is a draw. 
The second goes to the Spanish
The Italians now have five casualties and retreat shaken, but still hold
Rule 13 covers infantry hand to hand combat
