Dawn Raid in the Mohawk Valley
Bill Hogan ran his exciting French and Indian Wars game, "Dawn Raid in the Mohawk Valley" at HMGS-South's convention RECON 2014 in Orlando Fl. The unsuspecting and sleeping British troops were caught unawares by a lightning quick and devastating raid which decimated the surrounding county side. Many a militia man and civilian had fallen, but in the end the British maintained possession of the central fort, albeit on fire, and with minimal casualties to the regulars.
Stand to, Stand to, every man to his post!!!!
The Mountain Men's camp has been overrun in the onset of the attack.
As the French emerge from the woods after defeating the militia they are taken under fire by the British Battery #2 guarding the main gate and covering the retreat of the broken militia.
The Battle ends with the British and their allies firmly in control of the fort, albeit a slightly burning fort.
