About Scourge of War: Brandy Station
Scourge of War: Brandy Station is the latest expansion for Scourge of War: Gettysburg, touted as the definitive American Civil War tactical strategy game. Scourge of War: Brandy Station is a must-have for all American Civil War wargamers. It offers ten historical single player scenarios set in the midst of the savage cavalry action that opened the Gettysburg campaign.
After the Battle of Chancellorsville, Lee's Army of Northern Virginia was camped near Brandy Station, Virginia, preparing for their invasion of the North. The Confederate cavalry under Maj. Gen. JEB Stuart was to screen their northward movement with a cavalry raid. Union commander Maj. Gen. Joe Hooker intended to blunt this raid with an attack by his own cavalry under Maj. Gen. Alfred Pleasonton, which culminated in the largest cavalry battle ever fought on North American soil.
Historically the battle ended in a stalemate, but can you change history and use Stuart's cavalry to crush the Union cavalry? Or take command of Pleasonton's large mixed force of infantry and cavalry to send Stuart packing to Richmond?
