this should be Trans-Mississippi theatre

I assume this is a depiction of the fighting on Sigel's Front later in the battle. This was the position he mistakenly waited for Lyon to link up with him. Because he did not advance, the confederates were able to move their best troops to confront Sigel, then were able to move them back into battle against Lyon. Driving the Union piecemeal from the field due to their numbers. This is a Trans-Mississippi Battle. As for cards, Sigel stalled out allowing McCullock to seize the day. I would give the Union 3 card the Confederates 4.
