Battleground 7 – Bull Run
When first learning the game, try a short scenario with a
small map. These games can usually be completed in a few
hours and won’t overwhelm a new player with lots of units
to control. Try the Blackburn’s Ford scenario from 1st Bull
Run as the Confederate player.
Use artillery units with support from infantry to help take
well-defended positions. Artillery at short range is deadly.
It can cause three to four times the damage of regular small-
arms fire and can quickly blow holes in enemy lines even
against the best defenses.
When playing against the computer, remember that sometimes
the hint of an attack will be enough to send its units
scrambling for cover.
Be sure to keep brigades and their commanders close together.
