The American Civil War    
  1st Kernstown; 23 March 1862   Scale: 1:40, start: 11am, dark: 7pm, 1 game turn = 30 min.
     
 
Brief background:
Stonewall Jackson lost his only battle in independent command at 1st Kernstown. Although small, his presence triggered an overreaction by the Union War Department, which reassigned 20 000 men earmarked for McClellan in the Peninsula. These troops would fight in the Shenandoah Valley campaign which witnessed a string of battles and Confederate victories.
