    In special rules for this scenario is written:

    Before the game starts each player writes a simple order
    of march, for example “Lane’s Brigade, followed by
    Hoole’s Brigade, then Dale’s Brigade…” and so on. This
    is the order in which the brigades will enter the table, with
    each brigade arriving in march column if cavalry or
    infantry, or limbered if artillery. Units must enter the table
    at their specific road entry point or within six inches of
    that entry point. See the Granja de la Abundancia
    battlefield map.

    Does it means that each players army enters the battlfield with 1 brigade a turn in written order? or players may deploy as much units as they like?

    It means that you will move each brigade in order at their entry point. They might all arrive in the first turn. Of course, there could be order failures which could alter the arrival times of a brigade or two, but you’d have to be pretty unlucky for that to happen. Especially as they are moving on roads and in Column of March, giving a +2 to the command target.

    So I don`t uderstand why players must write the order of march?

    Or it means that player must first set up units from brigade in the head of the marching order and if there is enough room, he may place units from the next marching brigade?

    Basically its to lock the players into a predetermined course of action. So you won’t be able to look across the table if you are going 2nd and make your deployment decisions based on what happened in your opponents turn. So its creating a Fog of War challenge to your game.
