I believe this poster is attempting to do Fishing Creek also called Mills Spring Ky. Located near Nancy Ky. It was the battle that Gen. Zollicoffer was killed when he mistakenly addressed Federal troops thinking they were his own in the fog during the early hours. As for the flintlock muskets, the confederates had, it may be better to roll with only cross sabres as hits against any troop type. Note. The description of this battle is completely wrong, and of the wrong time period.
