January 7th, 1781

After the successful assault and capture of Mobile from the British, General Galvez began planning his upcoming assault on Pensacola. As such, he left Mobile for Havana to raise his next army. Meanwhile, British General Campbell, British commander of the Crown in the Floridas, decided to counter-attack and recapture Mobile while Galvez was away.

With what he could spare, General Campbell organized a 700 man force led by a German Waldeck officer Johann Von Hanxleden. Along with 300 Choctaw Natives, 100 British regulars of Campbell's own 60th Foot, a little over of 250 Colonial Loyalists from Pennsylvania and Maryland, the Waldeck Regiment of 60 men marched west.


Beginning at daybreak, Col. Von Hanxleden decided the time was right for a full assault on Mobile and its defenses. The challenge will be to capture the position on the east side of the river and then cross over as quickly as possible so that the Spanish will be caught by surprise. The British must capture the forward post and the earthen fort to secure Mobile.

The Spanish were prepared for the attack with a couple of prepared positions. Although outnumbered and lacking in some basic supplies, Lt. Ramon Del Castro y Gutierrez would face his destiny with confidence.

Weather Conditions: Overcast

Victory Conditions: The British win a major victory if they capture the earthen fort and Mobile harbor by the end of the first day. A minor victory if they capture the earthen fort by the end of the day. Any other result will be a Spanish victory by denying these conditions. Bonus for the British if they capture the Spanish supply depot intact.

A great scenario to get you started with the rules, as it covers many facets of company scale actions!

The scenario is available in the files section of the "Terraincognita" sub group in the free scenarios folder.
