Stonewall at Gettysburg
WDS Gettysburg - 156 Turns
Robert E. Lee's second invasion of the north began on June 3, 1863, when his forces began to slip away from their camps around Fredericksburg. James Longstreet had returned from the Virginia peninsula with Pickett's and Hood's divisions and would once more command the army's reunited First Corps (divisions under McLaws, Pickett, Hood, and Anderson). Thomas J. Jackson, fresh from his greatest victory at Chancellorsville, would command the Second Corps of the Army of Northern Virginia (divisions under Ewell, Johnson, Rodes, and AP Hill). Lee's army would spend the next month maneuvering and marching into Maryland and then into Pennsylvania.
As rumors abounded that the Union army was gaining rapidly on the Confederates from the south, Lee ordered his dispersed forces to begin closing up in anticipation of a possible battle. Jackson's corps was then spread out in central Pennsylvania in an attempt to capture the capital at Harrisburg. After word arrived from Lee that the Union army was much closer than they had believed, Jackson put his foot cavalry on the roads and moved to rejoin the rest of the army. On June 30, Jackson received word that a Union cavalry force was in Gettysburg. Unable to locate Stuart's Division, Jackson decided to drive on Gettysburg and attack any Federals he found there. He would then take the town and await the arrival of Longstreet's men moving east from Chambersburg.
AP Hill's Division would lead the advance along the Chambersburg Pike. Jackson's other divisions were still a few hours away moving southward towards the town. The Battle of Gettysburg was about to begin.
Raid on Stephenson's Depot
WDS Gettysburg - 18 Turns
NON HISTORICAL: This has been created to be a balanced (hopefully), enjoyable, PBEM scenario. After the Rebels defeat at Gettysburg supplies are a problem as they continue there retreat. It is decided to launch an attack on Stephenson's Depot in an attempt to gain the much needed supplies. This scenario often plays out right to the end. Hope you enjoy.
WDS Gettysburg - 16 Turns
Training scenario for HPS Gettysburg with two corps of all arms and about equal size in a meeting engagement. *** Version 1.01: Length increased to 16 turns to allow for some more maneuvering. Victory levels adjusted.
WDS Gettysburg - 100 Turns
Lee's Army of Northern Virginia is reinforced by a 4th Corps under DH Hill. Hooker's Army of the Potomac receives additional support in the form of the 22nd Corps from the Washington defenses. The scenario is balanced in that the CSA has their usual qualitative advantage, while the USA has a larger force. The 22nd Corps are garrison troops, basically D & E rated.
A Robert Frost Creation and Design.
Note: Contains components from both Campaign Overland and Campaign Gettysburg, requiring ownership of both titles.
