is a game of the Confederate attempt to retake the capital of Louisiana and its
Union-occupied arsenal, garrisoned by a brigade under Brig. Gen. Thomas
Williams. CSA Gen. John Breakinridge and his 2,500-man “army” was assured that
they would be supported by the new “scourge” of the Mississippi, the
much-feared Confederate ram, “Arkansas”. The resultant battle provides
simulation possibilities not only for some unusual street fighting but, also
rare, combined land-naval operations.
types of counters are used in the game: combat units (infantry, cavalry,
artillery and their crews, plus naval vessels), non-combat units (leaders, and
wagons), and informational markers. Baton Rouge is part of the Great
Battles of the American Civil War series (GBACW). This series is an offshoot of
the Terrible Swift Sword (TSS) system.
