How would you rate the Excelsior Brigade?

Post by Trailape » Mon Sep 03, 2018 6:25 am

Hi Guys
I'm writing up a scenario dealing with Barksdale's Charge at Gettysburg on 2 July 1863.
How would you rate the Excelsior Brigade?
I've heard they performed poorly and I've heard they performed reasonably well.
I'm rating the two other Brigades, Carr's and Burling's as ‘Regular' but I'm open to suggestions.
I'm considering ‘Green' as appropriate for the Excelsiors.
I've rated McLaw's Division as ‘Veterans' except for Barksdale's Brigade which is rated ‘Elite'.
Thoughts?

T,

Pretty much agree with the TMP thread, probably best based on a dice throw, 6,5,4 = Regular. 3,2,1 = Green!
