I have posted a refight of the battle of Hobkirk's Hill on my blog. It is a game that was generated by my 1780 South Carolina campaign that I've been running for the past year. So it is Hobkirk's Hill, but not exactly…

De Kalb?

When I have militia take horrendous casualties, I tell them before their morale roll that their political careers after the war are at stake!

Wow – great AAR and sounds like it was a ton of fun to game!

Winston, in our campaign Nathaniel Greene hasn't been sent to the south yet and so Baron DeKalb still commands the theater Continental troops and he didn't die at Camden. He had an independent command away from Gates and so he was not present at Gates' disaster.

Yes indeed! The British should have opened their files! Then maybe the artillery wouldn't have been as bad.

Jim, the size and quality of your scenarios create quite the spectacle. Great work!
