Pitzer's Run Scenario
We played this scenario this evening and had a great time. This is a small scenario from the original "Johnny Reb"
scenario booklet that came included with the rules. Pitzer's Run is an introductory scenario perfect for
teaching new players the "Johnny Reb" rules. The historical setting is the second day of Gettysburg, where Gen. Sickels orders Col. Berdan to scout into Pitzer's woods near the flank of his Corps. Berdan and his men, the 1st batt.,1st USSS and the 3rd Maine enter the woods and encounter two CSA infantry regiments, the 10th and 11th AL.
|The scenario - this is a small battlefield - only 2x2 ft.|
It fits nicely into a corner of the gaming table!
|The Union 3rd Maine. This is a 15 figure unit mostly consisting of old|
Frontier 15mm ACW figures. Essex mtd officer.
|The battlefield - showing the wooded terrain, stream and troops.|
|The encounter in the woods. This picture shows the rebel position beter. Most of the rebs |
are also Frontier figures.
|The turning point! After a few turn of shooting at each other in the woods, the CSA saw|
a great opporunity to charge the isolated 1st USSS.

|The 3rd Maine facing the 10th and 11th AL. The rebs are in disorder and it might be |
the perfect time for a counter-attack!
