1052South Mountain wargame
- Nov 7, 2002If anyone is interested, this weekend I will be presenting two public
miniature wargames based upon the fighting at South Mountain. These
games are FREE to the viewing public, and will be a part of the very
large Fall-In 2002 convention of wargamers at the Lancaster Host
Resort on route 30 in Lancaster PA.
Game #1 will be Friday night at 6PM. It will recreate Cox's attack on
Fox's Gap led by Rutherford B. Hayes and the 23rd OVI and others.
This is a game orginally presented at the Hayes museum in Fremont OH
in early October. The game will be in 15mm scale using Johnny RebIII
as the rules set.
Game #2 will be Saturday afternoon at 2PM. This will be a follow-up
game with the afternoon and evening action at Fox's Gap as Reno led
forward the rest of IX Corps while parts of 5 Rebel brigades tried to
hold the gap.
Both games are excerpted from the manuscript for my upcoming
wargaming book, "Undying Courage: The Maryland Campaign in
Miniature." This work is the third in a series of full-color
wargaming booklets. Volume 1 of the series, "Enduring Valor:
Gettysburg in Miniature" is now in print and for sale at Gettysburg
shops including Greystone's and others. Volume 2 is due out in

wargaming, feel free to stop by the Lancaster Host and watch the

offered advice, constructive criticism of the draft scenarios, and
suggestions, THANK YOU very much!
