I recently toured five of the Hungarian War of Independence 1848-1849 battlefields. I've written them up here:
The blog post points to a photo album for each battle.



Bloody Big BATTLES!

Next time you are in Budapest pop up the road (20 minutes by train) to Vac. You can still see the church(square).

Stecal: don't we all! But by mostly limiting myself to the nienteenth century, I reckon I get the best of both worlds – tons of variety, but with a single ruleset (BBB) that all our gang is happy with. And we mostly use 6mm so we can get away with a fair amount of proxying. 6mm Union look a lot like 1864 Danes or 1897 Greeks …

John, thanks for the tip. Yes, Vac is on the agenda for a future Vac-ation, maybe combined with the Slovak battlefields. But I've only researched the first battle of Vac so far, which is probably just a bit too small to bother with, and I haven't got as far as the second one, so I ruled it out for this trip.
