Product Description

On a quiet Pennsylvania summer morning, Confederate General Robert E. Lee gambled his new nation's hopes on a climactic battle at a crossroads town no one really wanted to capture. His troops stood at their peak: battle-tested, used to victory, and eager to end the war. Opposing him, Union General George Meade knew that he could save American unity with a victory. After two years of war, Meade understood that simply avoiding defeat would not satisfy the American people. The Union soldiers had known few victories, yet remained willing to lay down their own lives so that never again would one man own another.

The Origins Award winning designers of Rome At War, and Eagles Of The Empire bring you the ultimate struggle & sacrifice to preserve a nation.

Renowned wargame designer Dave Powell makes his Avalanche Press debut with this exciting game of the battle that decided America's destiny. A smooth-playing game with large, beautiful counters and a stunning map in the tradition of the popular Rome At War series. No combat charts, no markers - just an evening's gaming fun!

Avalanche Press gives a gift to Civil War buffs!
October 25, 2002

I rarely review wargames. Most are about as easy as splitting the atom with a toothbrush and are are so long that they should be listed as vocations rather than activities. Avalanche Press gives a game that is not only playable, but also gives a feel for the issues surrounding this historical event. Well done!!!!
