On the Confederate side, 3rd Corp’s Henry Heth faced an embarrassing situation. He had been under orders from General Lee to avoid a general engagement until the full Army of Northern Virginia had concentrated in the area. But his excursion to Gettysburg, “to find shoes”, was essentially a reconnaissance in force conducted by a full infantry division. This indeed had started a general engagement and Heth was on the losing side so far.

To the North of both McPherson and Seminary Ridge, on Oak Hill, Rode’s Division started to arrive. Doubleday had not yet completed reorganizing his lines and 1st Corp’s right flank was completely exposed. But during the lull, 1st Corp’s lines solidified and 11th Corp moved to support.

Historically Heath and Rodes waited for Early to arrive and an all-out attack on 1st and 11th Corp started at 2:00 p.m. But what if Rodes had not waited and attacked at 11:30a.m. as Doubleday was reorganizing?

 Deerfield 1704
 1676 28mm King Williams War Dave Valentine 
Description:“The people of Deerfield had long been living in fearful anticipation of an attack by French and Indians in Canada. Their stockade was built hurriedly in 1690 when they believed they were the next target of the French and Mohawks who attacked Schenectady that winter. Those residents whose homes lay outside the palisade, were encouraged by the town to build refuges within the protected area and to come there at night, for protection against an attack.

The fact that the houses at the north end of the street were empty on the night of February 29, 1704, because the residents of those buildings were "safely" ensconced in shelters within the palisade, gave the French and Indian raiders an advantage. They were able to creep noiselessly down the street and send an advance force to silently climb the snowbank that surrounded the palisade. This group then opened the north gate to admit the others, and the assault began……..”

Partial Narrative by Susan McGowan Titus based on research about John Hawks

The game will be centered around a small party of French and Mohawk trying to breach the palisade. The English will be tucked in their houses with only a couple of sentry wandering the streets. Can the French get the north gate open before they are discovered? Can they get away with captives?
