Blitzkrieg Commander III At The Printers

Exactly what it says above!  The finished files have all gone off to the printers, so everything is on course for our planned release at the Salute show on 22nd April.  Barring any unforeseen random issue with the files, we should get confirmation back from the printers that everything is OK early next week and we'll then have a confirmed date for delivery of the printed books.

We will be taking pre-orders for BKCIII, but we'll put up information about that once everything is confirmed by the printers.

Not long now folks...

AB17 – The Battle of Franklin

Both the Home and Gin have some smaller resin parts which require some minor clean-up and assembly before painting. Superglue works fine for this. The castings of these four structures are lovely, in fact, beautiful. The Carter Home and Outbuildings were designed by Mike Randles and the Gin by Paul Bernardino. Casting, as always, was done by John Mayer. They are now available for sale on our website under the Between the Lines link on the left navigation bar.

Please Help at Brandy Station!

Please Help at Brandy Station!

As you’ve likely heard, we have an opportunity to save a couple of important tracts from the Battle of Brandy Station! This hallowed Virginia ground  site of the largest cavalry battle ever is where you and other supporters of the Civil War Trust have already saved more than 2,000 acres. Now I’m asking for your help to save an additional 244 acres of this battlefield land. Without your assistance, how will we ensure these acres are preserved for future generations?

Early on June 9, 1863, Union cavalry splashed across the Rappahannock River at Beverly's Ford, catching Confederate counterparts unaware. By mid-morning a portion of the Confederate force under General W.H.F. “Rooney” Lee fell back from his position along a stone wall near Beverly's Ford and made a stand on the northern end of Fleetwood Hill. Here on 70 acres you and I are working to preserve Lee withstood yet another attack led by Union General John Buford in what one observer called “the finest fighting of the war.”

Farther to the south, near the village of Stevensburg, Union Colonel Alfred DuffiĆ©'s cavalry division met forbidding resistance from two regiments of Confederate cavalry posted along Hansbrough’s ridge. These men from South Carolina and Virginia held off DuffiĆ©'s Yankees until they were called away to fight at Fleetwood Hill. The Trust is now working to save the site of this bold stand 174 acres at Hansbrough’s Ridge.

For future generations to truly understand what took place on this ground in 1863, we must provide a way to experience and understand the whole battlefield. By saving these 244 acres to add to the 2,000 and more already preserved, you're doing just that: saving two crucial portions of the Brandy Station battlefield, where the valor of individual soldiers shaped the course of the battle and our nation's future.
