Why does my very healthy Cavalry fail to take artillery even when the artillery is overran and then overran again.....again....

What are the instructions and/or considerations for a cavalry charge? I've read bits and pieces but this part of my game just ain't working....For example.....an Elite unit, High and Fresh, no losses...charges
an infantry unit on open ground....They either charge to within a 1/2" map distance, stop and retreat or dismount. just need more help than what I got 8 months ago.....

There are 2 types of cavalry in Gettysburg, type 1 and type 2 - one of them... I think its type 2 does not charge at all. This may be why you are seeing this, plus the artillery issue of 8 months ago.
HITS & Couriers - a different and realistic way to play SoW MP.

Thanks Saddletank,
How can you tell what's what? Is it changeable? Sorta stupid I think?

Was there perhaps a change from 1.60 to 1.61 patch that may have affected how the reb cavalry is acting, this is when I have really noticed the difference. Those horse soldiers do nothing, they charge, then stop, quickly retreat...they run through the enemy without inflicting losses....it's weird, you send them to raid enemy forces and they go to a remote part of the map and rest....I've never seen it to this point?

the reb,

Have you tried using the B&F resources with cavalry? Bottom left of the toolbar use Attackmarch and Attack Column to approach the battery. Once upon the battery hit Charge, numerous times to wipe them out if you wish.

Yes, I do use B&F. It's really hit and miss, a lot more miss than hit....It appears that the Enemy A&I is much better, that is, the Yanks...sorta thought the cards were stacked in their favor, but that's not the case. I guess I need to practice more....Funny, Jones and Jenkins are somewhat good, but Hampton and Lee....forget it.....

Still fun....
