DBN - Battle of Lundy's Lane, July 25, 1814

I am working on putting on Lundy's Lane at our next club meeting.  I might be able to put it on at CSGA before that.  Let's see how that works out.  I will put some pictures and write up an after action report when we get some battles fought.

Anyway, it should be a pretty bloody affair.  Note I have been trying to find some good data where I could figure out which British units were Elite.  At this point in 1814, it seems the US were finally a true "Regular" force which earned the respect of the Veteran Brits.  The forces will be as follows:

Brig. General Scott (Attacker)
9th US Regulars, 3 companies (3 x Ms)
11th US Regulars, 3 companies (3 x Ms)
22nd US Regulars, 3 companies (3 x Ms)
25th US Regulars, 3 companies (3 x Ms)
Towson's Battery (1 x Na)

Brig. General Riall (Deployed along Lundy's Lane)
8th King's Foot, 1 company (1 x Ms(E))
89th Foot, 3 companies (3 x Ms)
Royal Scots, 3 companies (3 x Ms)
19th Dragoons, 1 troop (1 x Lc)
Lincoln Militia, 3 companies (3 x Ms (M))
Glengarry Light Infantry, 3 companies (3 x Li)
Heavy Gun Battery (1 x NA)

US Reserves/Reinforcements
Major General Porter and Major General Brown
Pennsylvania Volunteers, 3 companies (3 x Li (M))

Brig. General Ripley
21st US Regulars, 3 companies (3 x Ms)
23rd US Regulars, 3 companies (3 x Ms)
1st US Light Infantry, 2 companies (2 x Li)
Biddles Battery (1 x Na)

British Reserves/Reinforcements

41st Foot, 3 companies (3 x Ms)

Lt. Colonel Scott
103rd Foot, 3 companies (3 x Ms)
