Rules: A modified version of Rally Round the Flag by Scott Monsour
Scenario: "Antietam: Hooker" By George Anderson (Miniature Wargames Magazine, December 1990) Note: This scenario covers Hookers opening attack on the Cornfield. The scenario ends before reserves on both sides are brought into the battle. Hood for the Confederates and Mansfield for the Union.
Ground Scale: 1”= 30yds (apx.)
Table Size: 6’ X 5’
Victory Conditions: The Union must inflict 60% losses on the Rebels before the end of the game. The game length is eight fifteen minute turns.
About This Game:I ran this game three times in the fall of 2012, including at Fall-In. The Union players won two of the three games. The game pictured above was a near Union victory. Shortly after putting this game together, Rick Hasenauer released a Cornfield scenario for his Regimental Fire and Fury Scenarios book. At some point, I’m hoping to revisit this battle and give Rick’s scenario a try.
Thanks for looking
