STONEWALL in the VALLEY - GREAT CAMPAIGNS of the AMERICAN CIVIL WAR Series --March1862: President Abraham Lincoln has ordered General John Pope to Washington, giving him command over all Union forces in central Virginia. His orders:march "on to Richmond" in conjunction with General McClellan's Army of the Potomac and crush the Rebels once and for all. However, General Robert E. Lee's renowned Army of Northern Virginia has secretly moved north from Richmond to confront Pope before the Union plan can be put into effect. With his brilliant subordinates, including Stonewall Jackson, James Longstreet, and JEB Stuart, Lee is about to launch his most masterful civil War campaign. When it is over, the Confederates will be at the gates of the Federal capital in Washington, D.C. and John Pope will be out of a job. This simulation of the Second Manassas campaign is the first volume in Avalon Hill's new series of strategic Civil War games. Future games will link up with the Stonewall Jackson's Way map to portray much of the civil War's eastern theatre. This is one of the first Civil War games to concentrate on a specific campaign rather than a single battle. The game is fairly easy to learn and play. Indeed, several scenarios can be played to completion in about an hour. The two beautiful game maps portray central Virginia as it was in the summer of 1862, featuring roads, turnpikes, railroads, rivers, mountains - even bridges and fords! These highly accurate maps are based on original Civil War maps in state and county archives. The players control Union and Confederate military units in turns representing one day of real time. The game features five Basic scenarios, two Advanced scenarios, and a detailed day -by day historical analysis of the actual campaign.
