I hosted The Battle of Antietam for my club. Here is the Flickr link.

Great looking game. Now I'm distracted and want to pull out my 15mm ACW.

awesome! the terrain really invokes that iconic battlefield, nice job! and I liked the idea of using a little rope to outline the wooded areas. only see it if looking for it.

Can I ask what were the rules?

If you look at the bottom of the album name and click on "more" it has the rules, figures etc. info. The rules are "Mr. Lincoln's War" it is a regimental set of rules.

On some of the photos I have made some comments on what was happening in the photo. Scroll below the photo to see them. The "rope" is just green yarn. I have used it for years to outline woods. It comes in a large variety of colors and you can cut it easily and shape it to suit the scenario. If the players are careful it stays in place.
