Going after the Headless Horseman!
His head has been found and the colonials will fight to keep
the Headless Horseman from repossessing his melon! We had an entertaining
Halloween Rebels &Patriots game today. We played scenario 1 with the objective being the
Horseman’s freshly dug up head. I played
the Horseman and his minions while my buddy commanded the colonials. Battle
Highlights included my right flank Jager skirmishers repeatedly failing to
activate with back-to-back shake eyes rolls and retreating off the board While
the left flank jagers advanced to the objective and managed to score a couple
of points and recovering a modicum of honor for the jager corps. The Americans would win the day however, their withering fire
mauling the Hessians, assuring that the Horseman’s head remained an isolated
detachment for the time being.

Old Glory's General Nathaniel Greene figure lost his head for this conversion to the Headless Horseman. He'll have a starring role in a Rebels & Patriots Halloween scenario I'm putting together.

Units of militia seize the local fort. Upon hearing of the approach of regulars from Albany the militia promptly abandons the fort, retreats west into the woods but then doubles back determined to fight after scouts report the approaching force is smaller than anticipated and the already gathered militia force also expects to be reinforced as word of the rebellion spreads. It's at this point that our battle begins with the duke of York's independent company guided by a party of Indians & loyal frontier militia arriving at the fort. They make their way off the beach forming a skirmish line to engage the onrushing militia.The battle included a large running fire fight, infantry assaults and cavalry charges. Only after an entire day of fighting would the local militia grudgingly cede the field to the regulars.
