Description Edit | History

(from GMT website:)

Red Badge of Courage extends GMT's popular Great Battles of The American Civil War system to cover both battles of Bull Run, or Manassas.

1st Bull Run, the opening battle of the Civil War, features two untrained armies, some exceptional and some truly poor leaders, and one of the best gaming situations in the war. Both sides are as evenly matched as one gets during the war, and there is a constant stream of reinforcement keeping both players in the game up to the end.

2nd Bull Run is one of General Robert E. Lee's greatest victories, in which he smashed John Pope's politically riddled Union army, setting the stage for the Battle of Antietam (Sharpsburg) several weeks later.

Red Badge of Courage uses version 4.3 of the GBACW system, building on lessons learned from the two previous battle games in the series. And the game not only includes the two complete battles, but it has a half dozen smaller scenarios that enable you to play various aspects of the battle in detail, many in a day.

4 2nd Bull Run additional errata
While producing the VASSAL module and creating scenario set-up files, I compiled a small amount of additional errata to go with that that was originally released for the game.

12 First Manassas Leader Cards
I created this player aid so you can: • See the photos of the actual leaders (an era of awesome facial hair) • See the stats on the card more easily (for the vision impaired) • Use them for status markers and counter staging Print'em...Sleeve'em...Enjoy'em! Thanks.
