Francis Marion and his rebel partisans have advanced to Georgetown, SC and will conduct a siege (unless the British garrison elects to surrender).

In the picture below, the Loyalist garrison of Georgetown, South Carolina await the arrival of Marion's partisans. Building was made by Herb Gundt and all of the figures are from the Fife & Drum AWI range of figures.


I developed some quick and easy siege rules to use in my South Carolina 1780 Campaign. The rules should work for virtually any Horse and Musket era wargames.
