Captain Shandy returns, again.

Ireland 1689.  As the Kingdom collapses, Captain Shandy returns to the fray.  This time the Battle of the Bog; with King William's army (and Captain Shandy) engaging with the rearguard of a Jacobite Irish and French force on the road to Limerick.   The Jacobite forces being commanded by the Scottish expatriate Le Duc de Pomme Frit.

The battlefield was cut in two by the river - with a bog slowing down the approach to the river.

As dawn broke, cavalry skirmishers were sent forward...and Dragoons dismounted.
