There will only be 250 copies of this game printed.
It is the summer of 1814 and the British Navy controls the Chesapeake Bay. With that navy is a small professional army, fresh from the battlefields of Europe and Napoleonic warfare, ready to land on the shores along the bay and bring this war to an end. Their targets are Norfolk, Washington and Baltimore, the heart of American ship building and maritime industry. Standing in their way is a large disorganized militia and a handful of marines. The historical campaign resulted in Washington being burned. But now the decisions are yours……
Our War of 1812 Campaigns uses the game system from our Blue and Gray series adapted to this era. War Along the Chesapeake is Volume 1 and will be followed later by Volume 2: War Along the Great Lakes and Volume 3: War Along the Gulf Coast.
Our number one goal on this project is to get you your game very, very SOON. Our goal is a delivery in March or April.
All Kickstarter backers will receive a book on the campaign using excerpts from Henry Adams classic "A History of the United States during the Administrations of Jefferson and Madison".
