Check out the Game Day Primary Events List:

Title: Cavalry Battle of the Ontigola-Ocana Road 
GM: Tom Garnett
Number of Players: 6
Scale: 25mm
Rules: Carnage and Glory II
Scenario Description:  18 November 1809.  Three brigades of French cavalry (3,000 sabers) come upon three larger brigades of Spanish cavalry with over 4300 men.  Can the outnumbered Frenchmen pull off a win against the superior Spanish cavalry?

Carnage & Glory II is an easy to learn and easy to play computer moderated rule system suitable for both the novice and experienced player. There are no complex charts or bookkeeping and accounting required as Carnage & Glory II maintains all the relevant information regarding  the status of the combat units and general officers within the system database. Complex concepts such as variable weather and ground conditions, heat exhaustion, ammunition usage, mental and physical fatigue and variable morale are easily accommodated by the system. By eliminating the emphasis on dice and charts typical of more traditional wargames, the sole focus of the game becomes the tactical movement and engagement of the forces under your command. The result is a thoroughly enjoyable and stimulating wargame experience.
