At Rumsdorf (1) ..

back to the campaign ....

After the delaying rearguard action at Buckdorf the remnants of the Monrovian army head for Rumsdorf, followed by the Wittenberg forces...

---oXo---

the last few Monrovian stragglers reach Rumsdorf ...
Pursuing Wittenberg cavalry are moving up towards Rumsdorf ....
nearby some dragoons pass by St Wulfred's Abbey
by the time they are in sight of the town walls the gates are closed, they retire and take up position by the abbey; they will wait for the rest of the Wittenberg army to arrive....

The dragoons have moved forward and take control of a farm ...
 a small work party is clearing ground and making gabions ...
 as troops arrive ....
 a parley has been arranged - a Wittenberg officer presents terms for the surrender of Rumsdorf ...
