Long sweeping lines of Yankees prepare to engage the Confederates in the early morning light as the fog lifts. Within hours, the lush farm fields will be trampled and the sturdy wooden fencing torn down or otherwise destroyed. The scene was a familiar one in some places in the South, particularly in the Shenandoah Valley, where the town of Winchester changed hands more than seventy times and saw at least five major battles fought nearby.
Charge reader Keith Williamson has submitted a photograph of one of his recent 15mm Civil War miniature wargames. Note how the use of the fencing breaks up the tabletop and adds more interest. Also, note his terrain squares..
Thanks for sending the JRGS this photo, Keith!
