We're trying out a new battle and a new region of the Civil War in a couple of months with our recreation of the Battle of Grimball's Landing; the first action of the 54th Massachusetts, which is given a brief scene in the movie "Glory".

Here is a summary of our games: F-178, S-179, S-356;

Friday, 7:00 PM, Saturday, 10:00 AM, Saturday, 3:00 PM
4 hrs, Players: 8, Period: American Civil War, Scale: 28mm, Rules: "By Company, Into Line! To divert Confederate reinforcements from a renewed attack on nearby Fort Wagner, Brig. Gen. Quincy A. Gillmore designed two feints. An amphibious force ascended Stono River to threaten the Charleston & Savannah Railroad bridge. A second force, consisting of Alfred Terry's division, landed on James Island on July 8. Soon, Terry demonstrated against the Confederate defenses, but did not launch a major attack. On July 16, the Confederates attacked Terry's camp at Grimball's Landing.
