The battle of Spring Farm 1781

video

This an excellent battle to refight, but only if your opponent is not familiar with it.

My friend was not familiar with it and he played it very much along the lines of Lafayette (including being suspicious).

The British forces are far larger than the briefing indicates, particularly on the American left flank. Initially the forces on the table are small, and this allows a skirmish type feel to the game, until the American main force arrives to be surprised by the British forces hiding in the woods waiting for the American advance. Our battle very much shadowed the actual events of the real action.

The pictures I took did not come out too well, a bit fuzzy, hence the video report.
