On the 15 February 1862 General Grant secured the capture of Fort Donelson and the capture of 12000 Confederate troops on the 31 March 2013 we re-played the battle in hope of reversing the results…..unfortunately this was not to be the case for the South.
Our Battle of Fort Donelson was played over the Easter weekend at my friend Scott Robertson’s house. Myself, Scott, Andrew Parr and Mark Piper were the participants in the game. Andrew and Mark on one side and myself and Scott on the other.
The game went very much as it did on the actual day, Confederate forces slowly pushed back the thin line of Blue, but Union re-enforcements eventually arrived preventing the Confederate victory and escape.
