This was a 15mm game played using Sharp Practice rules and based on the Foraging scenario from the Terrible Sharp Sword supplement. Both sides had to search through the farmsteads for foodstuffs while holding off the opposition. The Rebs had a mixed force of foot and horse while the Yanks were all infantry. My Union boys found nothing but trouble while searching and John's Confederates came across more than they could cart off.

Very nice.

The scenery and photography helps create a ‘feel' of the period in my opinion.

Best wishes,
