Play D-Day to Berlin with Me

I am using Vassal.org to play remote miniature board games with players.  I have modified the Vassal game for Peter Pigs “Poor Bloody Infantry” for its map and counters. 

To play the game you will need to install the free version of TeamViewer on your computer (www.teamviewer.us).

We will then schedule a game period of an hour and you will then loginto my game computer via TeamViewer and we will play what is actually a boardgame of D-Day to Berlin.

Sound like fun?  If so e-mail me at sentry1212 at dayofbattle dot com.  Please copy this into your e-mail program and fix the at and dot.  Put “Playtest” in the subject header.

I look forward to gaming with you 🙂

Nathaniel Greene’s Subordinate Commanders

Article on Greene’s Generals

Chris Parker GamesI found a great article on The Miniatures Page for any body interested in the American Revolution.

“General Nathaniel Greene in his victorious campaigns in the Carolinas was fortunate in his major subordinates, who taken as a group and individually, are a fascinating selection of officers-infantry, artillery, and cavalry. They were as talented a group of commanders in any army during the period.

Otho Holland Williams
1749-1794

Williams began his service in 1775 in the Frederick City rifle corps. When the Virginia and Maryland rifle companies were formed into a rifle regiment, Williams was promoted to major and later became the unit’s commander. He was seriously wounded and captured when Fort Washington was taken in November 1776. He was exchanged in time for the battle of Monmouth. Sent south in April 1780 with de Kalb’s command, he distinguished himself at Camden and commanded a brigade of Maryland Continentals at Guilford Courthouse, Hobkirk’s Hill, and Eutaw Springs and particularly distinguished himself at the latter, leading an attack that shattered the British line along with the Virginia Continental Brigade. His most notable achievement, however, was in command of the rear guard of Greene’s army in the retreat to the Dan River. He screened the rear of the army, never allowing the British to overtake either the main body or the rear guard, and never became decisively engaged. His operations were expertly done, and much of the credit for the successful retreat to and crossing into Virginia belongs to Williams and his Continentals.”
