Perryville

Description

PERRYVILLE: The battle for Kentucky, 7-9th October 1862.

In the fall of 1862, the young Rebel nation launched two invasions into border state territory. One ended in the bloody Battle of Antietam. The other—lesser known—effort culminated in the Battle of Perryville.

Bragg’s campaign to seize Kentucky from the North was of critical importance. A crippling blow dealt here would have transferred the war from Tennesse (and further south) to the Ohio River. U.S. Grant’s efforts at Fort Donelson and Shiloh would have been voided. The war in the west would be fundementally altered in the South’s favor.As it was, Bragg was unable to bring in the available Confederate forces and fight a decisive battle against Buell. In this game, however, the player can take an active hand in drawing on all the Southern forces to bring on the battle that might have been.
