O Reilly s cavalry advances to Chateau Peitrebona where it can attack the French infantry. Rousseau s Brigade enters the area in March formation along with the Right Wing Battery. The 11 th Infantry (4 th Formation) moves onto the map in march formation along with Haddick s Battery. Gen. Frimont s battery fires a barrage at the French 101 st Line on the Fontanone. This causes the brigade to retreat. Frimont s battalion engages in Skirmish combat with the 101 st but this has no effect. Gen. Chambarlac s Division reacts to the gunfire by advancing to the western side of Marengo. Gen. Victor is still ineffective so the French player leaves him stationary so that he can recover. Gen. Lannes Corps is deployed on the hills near Chateau Buzana. Although Lannes is ineffective, his corps moves out to buttress Victor s right as well as to cover Castel Ceriolo. Since the French Army headquarters starts on its ineffective side, the units must roll for their movement
