* cavalry are great as long as they're not being shot at, keep some handy to cover your arse, or use them to punish enemy guns out in the open. Never charge them directly anything likely to get a good shot at them, and cowardly tactics are needed for your horsey-types to last very long.
* Big guns are bloody lethal. Mix them in between (but not behind unless they're howizters or mortars) your troops, switch them to canister shot when the enemy approaches your line and you'll never lose to an equal force advancing on you.
* Vary your line shape. Draw then enemy into attacking something disposable and then have your better chaps concentrate fire.
And finally: he who has the most arty dictates how the battle is fought.
