Here is and excellent article from the old and much missed Gorget and Sash magazine. Really just scans of this. There really is not much on the 1779 Georgia campaigns and the siege of Savannah. Good description is f the siege and battle with uniform details and order of battle. In three parts.

Nice!

Do you have other editions of Gorget and Sash (which might be worthy subjects for additional battle resources to post on your blog)?

I forgot all about that mag.

I will be posting the article on the Georgia Continental line brigade next. After that Kenneth Hayes article on Wietzel's Mill which is just brilliant ( as is all his works I have found).

Gorget and Sash did brilliant work but was very little known.

That was worth it just for the jolt of nostalgia.

I am looking forward to the article on the Georgia Continentals. I've read what I could find on them but it adds up to not much.

Thanks for rescuing some great wargames research that deserves to be much more widely known and utilised.

Bill N, just posted it here, on Fife and Drum miniature forum and my blog. I hope you enjoy it and will be curious about your thoughts and reaction. You are outstandingly knowledgeable about the Southern that so I value your opinion.

Durban Gamer, thank you. That is why I have been posting these. Gorget and Sash was a seldom seen but outstanding publication which deserved wider readership. I hope, through my efforts to not only make these articles wider available but reawakening interest in this publication.
