BLUE vs GRAY: THE CIVIL WAR CARD GAME
GETTYSBURG
Both sides deploy as below and place any leftover cards in numerical order use Historical Scenario rules regarding Late-War & Emancipation. The game begins on Step 3: Combat of the USA Turn. (In game-terms, the actual battle lasted for 2 CSA turns.) Victory is determined as in a normal game.
HIGH WATER MARK
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Gettysburg is popularly regarded as the high-water mark of the Confederacy. In the East, Lee had invaded the North. The Army of Northern Virginia had routed the VIII Corps at the Second Battle of Winchester and cut off Harper's Ferry (Lee didn't physically occupy it, but he effectively controlled the area). Lee was poised to strike at Harrisburg, and blow the Iron Bridges, cutting the North in two. Success would bring relief to the Western Theater, where the Confederates were divided and under heavy pressure.
~ ~ ~
Bragg was pulling back in Tennessee, Grant was besieging Pemberton in Vicksburg and J.E. Johnston's forces were preparing to strike Grant, but the prospects were poor. (Johnston occupies Jackson, Mississippi, proper, but his position was untenable and he failed to break the siege, so for game purposes, the USA controls Jackson.)
It is the Summer of 1863. Will Meade halt Lee's invasion of the North? Will Grant prevail at Vicksburg? Or will the South hunker down and defend rather than invade? It's all up to you..
