Hessian infantry overruns an American artillery battery defending the stone bridge over Assunpink Creek. (Click on each photograph to enlarge it.)
Charge! readers and Erie, Pennsylvania, wargamers Eric Kessler and Stephen Huckaby sent me some very nice photos of a 25mm AWI game using a scenario for the Second Battle of Trenton (also known as the Battle of the Assunpink Creek, which took place on January 2, 1777). I believe they used Brother Against Brother as the rules.
Trenton, a once peaceful colonial New Jersey town, is rattled a second time in the American Revolution by the discordant sounds of warfare as combatants maneuver for advantage. American advance forces significantly delayed Lord Cornwallis’s forces before slipping across the creek to prepared defensive positions.
