Hood at Atlanta: The Battle of Atlanta
by George Anderson

In the second part of a three-part series, George Anderson covers the Battle of Atlanta in a scenario designed mainly for Johnny Reb. Anderson has an excellent historical introduction to the scenario. This is a rather large scenario and probably shouldn’t be attempted by new players. The map is 5×7 feet.

Corydon: July 9, 1863, Indiana
updated by Scott Mingus, Sr.

This scenario article covers the small Battle of Corydon, where members of the Indiana state militia ambushed Morgan’s men. The scenario is very small, with a brigade on each side and only a 3×3 foot map. This one looks good for beginners. It originally appeared in the Johnny Reb scenario booklet and has been updated by Scott.
