    The plans are:

    The artillery will be set up as it was during the campaign. Horse drawn with limbers and cassions trains, including traveling forges and battery wagons.

    That said, the actual pieces may have to be moved with man power at first, as horses and mules have not yet been constructed.

    As I said in another thread, IT WILL BE GRAND!!!!

    Cannons, mortars, howitzers, heavy siege artillery etc.
    With this question, here is a 3 part article on the Artillery specifically applied at Antietam.

    Enjoy.

    Fantastic! To actually have a full artillery system in the game is excellent!

    What is the process of reserving artillery?
    do you take the whole battalion of artillery (the artillery equivalent to a regiment) OR do you just take a battery?

    In the case of the confederate situation, early on, batteries were assigned to brigades. IF a brigade or a division got into a scrape and didn't have enough artillery, (i.e., theirs not near the field, have to leave and go re-supply, etc.,) the reserve was supposed to be a deposit where any and all organizations could pull back up or needed artillery.

    In many cases with this situation where a battery was assigned to a brigade, if artillery was needed on another part of the field, batteries would not go assist other units because they thought they belonged to a particular brigade/division.

    So the reserve acted as a repository where any unit could draw needed back up or supply.

    Hopefully that made sense.
