The battle of Monmouth, June 28 1778, was the last major fight in the northern theater, during the American Revolutionary War, and largest one-day battle of the whole war, for the number of men involved. Gen. Washington attacks Lt. Gen Henry Clinton's rearguard at Monmouth Court House. The legend of Molly Pitcher is generally associated with this battle.
The game uses Wellington's Victory's system, modified for the American Revolution era. No cavalry charges and complex rules. The main aspects of the rules include unit facing, morale modified by casualties received, command control and fatigue due to hot temperatures during the battle. Victory is determined by eliminating enemy strength points and capturing the 4 crossroads in the battle area.
