Cheer Boys Cheer: Battles of 1862

Watermarked PDF

BATTLES OF 1862, a supplement for CHEER BOYS CHEER (2nd Edition) - wargame rules for the American Civil War (ACW).

BATTLES OF 1862 details four ready to play historical scenarios, with maps, detailed lists of troops and equipment, background material and historical results, all fought in the year 1862.

MILL SPRINGS - Union pressure on the Confederate defence line in Kentucky is growing.  The Rebels plan to stop it dead with a pre-emptive strike on the converging Federal armies.

OAK GROVE - Union forces are slowly but inexorably moving on Richmond.  Now they plan to sieze heavily defended Oak Grove to bring their artillery in range of the Confederate Capital.

PARKER'S CROSSROADS - A Union infantry division tries to block and destroy a Rebel cavalry raid.

RICHMOND -  The Confederate heartland offensive is storming through Kentucky.  Can a scratch force of newly raised Union troops possibly stop them? 

WARNING - this is not a complete game.  You will need "Cheer Boys Cheer 2nd Edition" to play, although scenarios can be adapted to other brigade level wargames rules.

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
