S-218 - The Ware of 1812 in the North, Lundy's Lane, 25 Luly 1814. Sat. 4:00 pm, put on by James Fox using his home rules. "It can be said that the birth of the modern US army occurred not at Valley Forge in 1777-1778 but along the Niagrara in 1814." It's the high mark of the 1814 Niagara Campaign and US General Jacob Brown is determined to get the best of the British Division and follow on the York or Kingston.
I had command of the Ripley's Brigade: the 1st, 21st and 23rd Infantry, and Ritchie's Battery (6 pounders) and Biddle's Battery (12 pounders).
The situation as the British Reserves are ready to take to the field. The game was called as it was determined that the American's could no longer take the hill as over half of their regular infantry battalions were broken (the 1st, 22nd and 23rd fail morale) or close to breaking (the 1st, 9th and 11th have taken heavy losses). The British have taken heavy losses as well. The militia brigade has broken and two others are in bade shape. Not to mention that LtGen Drummond and Brigadier Pearson have been killed in the battle. However the arrival of the British reserves will close the hole in their center. The Americans were forced to concede the field of battle.
We were also out of time. Very enjoyable game.
