Cuirassiers move away from enemy square to avoid blocking artillery

13 brigade skirmish 7 Prussian, no casualties

Notes on Game

Cavalry may not charge a formed square, and they must keep out of the square 4” defence zone. So by moving towards the cavalry each move, the square is pushing them away from the abandoned guns and towards their own artillery. Soon they will mask the artillery firing on south Uelzen.

Defence Zones are covered in wargame rule 5
