Poor Card

Game Notes

Blucher has passed command back to commander 4th corps (3CP)

He then moves to meet 3rd corps (1CP) to change their orders (2CP)

Corps arrive on the table in the order of march contained in their corps orders

Both V French and 3rd Prussian have their cavalry are the rear of the column.

This prevents the respective players from sending the cavalry ahead of the column
