The Battle of the Yellow Breeches/Dillsburg, July 3,1863 An Expansion module for Summer Storm. The Gettysburg Campaign remains a source of endless interest to both historian and wargamer, in part for the many ways in which small acts of fate worked to shape the course of larger events. The Devils to Pay explores a little known, but quite plausible, alternate chain of events turning on one such small incident.
Essentially, this scenario is very similar to the Battle of South Mountain in 1862, except that the gap is far wider and less defensible and the stakes, if anything, are even higher! A desperate defense/attack, coupled with wildly variable reinforcements should make for a game with quite a bit of replay value! The Union player must mount a furious attack with his arriving troops, regardless of casualties, knowing that he has a chance to strike a war-winning blow. The Confederate player must form a desperate, collapsing defense on several fronts, while trying to extricate both Ewell's troops and as many supplies as possible from his foothold on the east shore of the Susquehanna.
