Scenarios and Fog-of-War Rules for

Battles of the American Civil War

This book provides nine fictional scenarios and fog-of-war rules for the American Civil War for use with many game systems. The scenarios are for medium and large battles.

What is a miniature wargame scenario? At least a map, orders of battle, initial deployments and a schedule of reinforcements. So any scenario should be usable with any American Civil War game system for which the orders of battle and map scale make sense.

Why fictional scenarios, battles that could have happened but didn’t? Historical scenarios give knowledgeable players way too much information about their opponent and take away many command decisions. And you’ve probably already played scenarios based on most major historical battles of the American Civil War anyway. So how about trying some brand new situations that test your skills, situations that let YOU make the decisions?

Why fog-of-war rules? Do you want to keep your enemies guessing as to what you’re up to and distract them with fake maneuvers? Do you want to disguise your attack plans, mass your forces where they’re least expected, and then launch blistering attacks? Are you bold enough to plan and execute attacks like Jackson’s at Chancellorsville? If so, then you need fog-of-war rules!

 You get:

  • Nine fictional scenarios for use with any American Civil War game system that has divisions/brigades as its basic units. All scenarios and rules are adaptable for game systems that are based on brigades/regiments….
  • Unique, general purpose fog-of-war rules that allow hidden movement and deployment for use in all of the scenarios and in scenarios designed for other game systems….
  • Maps and initial situation write-ups for all scenarios with initial deployments and arrival times for reinforcements….
  • Orders of battle for both “Shouting the Battle Cry of Freedom” and "Fire & Fury". The orders of battle can be used as templates to create orders of battle for other rule systems besides these two….
  • Night and sleep rules for multi-day battles….
  • Color-coded troop tags for all orders of battle….
  • Hidden deployment and movement cards for use with the fog-of-war rules….
  • Terrain markers (Light/Medium/Heavy) for hiding the nature of terrain until units actually enter it….

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.
