The Devil's Den

One hundred and fifty years after the events that took place near a small town in Pennsylvania turned Gettysburg into one of the most famous battlefields in the world, we refight a section of that battle; the fight for the Devil’s Den. David Bickley umpires a game that pitches the Union soldiers into a desperate struggle to defend their position in and around this iconic section of the battlefield.


The second battle using our 2013 Gettysburg Sesquicentennial Show Table, sees Barry Hilton playtesting his Republic to Empire ACW variant rules, as the Rebel commander seeking to shift the Union troops (Col. Joshua Chamberlain of 20th Maine and all) from their lofty position on top of Little Round Top.
