Battle of Monocacy in 15mm using the Gettysburg Soldiers rules set

Two blockhouses (far left and far right of image) protect the old covered bridge and the B&O Railroad bridge at Monocacy Junction.

Veteran wargamer and master figure painter Larry Reber of www.gettysburgsoldiers.com sent me some photographs of a recent game he ran using a scenario I wrote for the July 1864 Battle of Monocacy (near Frederick, Maryland). This scenario appeared in Charge! issue #25, and can be downloaded for a modest charge from the Wargame Vault.

Larry will be presenting this impressive-looking Monocacy game at the upcoming Drums at the Rapids wargaming convention in northwestern Ohio.

Here are the rest of Larry’s photographs!

Lew Wallace's Union skirmishers occupy the blockhouse and rifle pits on the north side of the Monocacy River.

McCausland's Cavalry cross at Worthington Ford and dismount for a flanking attack.

Union infantry await the Confederate advance behind a rail fence separating Worthington and Thomas farms.
