I recently picked up DBACW. My son has taken an interest in wargaming but wanted to play the ACW which I do not have experience with.

I decided to go with DBACW (for now at least) for a rule set because it will allow us to get an army on the table quickly.

Are there resources online for ready to go scenarios for DBACW? I could research and create my own, but I figure I didn't need to reinvent the wheel if there was a blog or something out there that has a bunch available already.

I haven't come across scenarios for DBACW (haven't gone looking particularly either, as I'm busy with DBN).

With DBN, I've found it easier to start with basic points value games and then tackle scenarios after the players have built up a basic fluency with the rules. I suspect the same approach would hold for DBACW.

The game system also works for smaller battles where the stands are designated as smaller units than the nominal regiments. So if you come across scenarios that you like for other games, they should translate pretty well.

There is a fun video recap of a massive Gettysburg game:
