ANTIETAM CAMPAIGN is the latest in a series of games based on Civil War campaigns. Scenarios cover the battles of Antietam, South Mountain, and Harpers Ferry. All can be linked to re-create the entire campaign.
Each unit and commander which fought or could have fought in the campaign is rated for its movement, combat and leadership capabilities. The Confederates are vastly outnumbered, but boast fine commanders such as Robert E. Lee, Thomas A. "Stonewall" Jackson and James Longstreet. The Union Army is fighting on its own ground and is much more powerful than the Confederate forces, but has difficulty bringing that might to bear. If they can, the war might end sooner. If the Confederates succeed, they might swing Maryland to the Southern side.
