Thinking of some campaign for ACW that would allow for multiple battles. Needs to be such that the armies are small enough to do entire OOBs. Most immediate thoughts would be 1862 and/or 1864 Shenandoah campaigns.

Other ideas?

What scale are you thinking of? Is each unit on the table a regiment or a brigade?

If the former is the case then at the small I can suggest Cox's May 1862 campaign in West Virginia – roughly two Federal brigades versus two Confederate brigades. Or a little larger in numbers would be the operations in eastern Kentucky in late 61 to early 62 between Thomas and Zollicoffer.

Increasing the size of the forces can give you the Iuka-Corinth Campaign in the autumn of 1862 or the Prairie Grove Campaign in late 1862.

Finally, the Shenandoah Campaign of July 1864 offers a much more balanced scenario then later in the summer after Sheridan was assigned to this theatre.

1864, Sterling Prices attempt to take St. Louis. A number of battles fought all across the state of Missouri with the big one happening at Westport (Kansas City).

I would second the Peninsular Campaign/Seven Days

Lots of skirmishes in Indian Territory.

"Zouave" magazine had a neat campaign system based on the geography of the Shenandoah Valley. Based upon boxes on a map it was a very efficient way to move back and forth from the map to the table top. If you can lay your hands on it, it would be an excellent way to go.

Either Jackson's or Sheridan's Valley campaigns could be entertaining. Maybe Bragg's Kentucky campaign?

They are excellent. We did the Shenandoah Valley Campaign several times. There was also a Peninsular Campaign. I have both. It's best if you have a non-player to moderate the campaign. The Union players were in a room and the Confederate players in another.

The moderator went back and forth. Then when there was a battle, the moderator set up the battle in a third room. Great fun. But they ended the way most campaign games do. One side started losing and lost interest. In that system when one side starts to go downhill, it's difficult to recover.

By the way what does this have to do with Kreuzdorf Bridge? Is this the work of the bug?

Think it is the bug
