As part of a series of articles that we will be posting to document the making of a battle pack, we thought it would be interesting to post the Antietam/South Mountain test scores of our very own in-house Grognard; JC Edwards A.KA. Sarge A.K.A The Mad One.

Below you will find a list of all of the Antietam/South Mountain scenarios and JC's high scores for each.

I think you're right. Even with a laptop it would be hard to play, bouncing around like that, holding the reins while trying to frantically click the Charge button. I wouldn't want to try it.

Unbelievable! Nobody, and I mean NOBODY, will ever top those scores.

United States Army College Selects Scourge of War: Gettysburg for Senior Officer Training

In a testament to the battlefield realism, historical accuracy and quality user experience of the game, the United States Army Command and General Staff College at Fort Leavenworth, Kansas has chosen Scourge of War: Gettysburg for inclusion in its suite of classroom training simulations. The Army is using the game as part of its professional education program for developing the next generation of senior Army leaders.

Scourge of War: Gettysburg is being used in two different Fort Leavenworth classes. The first class trains Simulation Operations Officers and will use computer driven simulations such as Scourge of War: Gettysburg in combination with classic map, rulebook and dice war games the Army traditionally uses.

The second Mission Command class trains students in how to exercise command and control on the battlefield. This class will use Scourge of War: Gettysburg to simulate key action on the first day of the three day Gettysburg battle, including a multi-user Rapid Decision and Synchronization Process. They will use a scenario that puts the student in the command position of Union General John Buford or Confederate General Henry Heth, thus imposing the unforgiving real time pressure of battlefield command.

The US Army Command and General Staff College educates and develops leaders for full spectrum joint, interagency and multinational operations; acts as lead agent for the Army’s leader development program; and advances the art and science of the profession of arms in support of Army operational requirements.

There are over 800 guests online on the forum as I write (Sunday pm in the UK). Is this all the trainee officers at Fort Leavenworth doing their homework ??!!

Yep, I'd say a series of "hey check this story out" e-mails to those mentioned by bedbug are in order.

We're a few days early, but we knew that a lot of people are taking off and wanted to get started. So we finished up the patch this morning and got the final Antietam Installer finished.

GET THE PATCH! You need the patch to play the map pack because we added some new features that the map pack is using.
Scourge of War - Gettysburg Patch 1.4

The map pack is available in both of our download stores, but here's a link to get you there fast:
Scourge of War Store

Install the patch, install the map pack, then you'll find the new stuff on the Additional Battles Screen. The team here has done an amazing job of recreating the Battle of Antietam. There's something for everyone, some easy ones, hard ones, and even an 11 hour one if you want to play the entire battle. Lots of new maps and scenarios, more content than the original game. This one's a winner!

I'm not sure about that portrait issue. Can you post a screenshot?

Scenario with the most artillery.. The full Rebel Army scenario has a BUNCH of artillery. AN17.

Hi, I just purchased the Antietam pack- which scenes have the most artillery please? And why is Longstreet's picture showing Jeb Stuart? otherwise looking good, I was/am greatly looking forward to this- thanks

Very good release and more maps.....most excellent.

I do really appreciate the Antietam rebel flag mod. My history is sketchy here, but did the Irish brigade carry into battle their "green" battle flags at Antietam?
Posted: 5 years, 3 months ago by Blaugrana #40135
Patch downloaded

Antietam bought and downloaded, installed and working

Just fought 1st scenario - terrifying daybreak - brilliant intro to Antietam.

Thanks to all for this brilliant addition to this brilliant game.

We apologize to everyone that has ordered the CD version of the game in the past two weeks. We ordered new CDs in plenty of time, but there was a mess up with the CD service. We expect to receive the CDs on Monday. We ship priority mail so you should get them in time to wrap for Christmas. UPDATE - We have confirmed delivery Monday, if we get them early enough they will go out Monday, if too late, then Tuesday at the latest. You'll have them by Friday in the US.

Good thing you didn't have to buy anything from Best Buy via internet because you would never have gotten this type of service...

Here are some screenshots of the South Mountain maps that will be included in the Antietam Pack.  The South Mountain area is represented on two 5x5 mile maps with the North map representing Fox's and Turners Gap, and the South map representing Crampton's and Brownsville Gap.  Note: The Fox's Gap shots are named starting with "fg", Crampton's Gap starting with "cg".  Enjoy!

Mine too. Touring the area back in October, it is hard to comprehend the sheer bravery of those Confederate soldiers defending the gaps. They could see the Union soldiers coming in masses from miles away, yet (most of them) held their ground to the last second. We had a blast designing the scenarios, and I hope you have a blast playing them. Looking forward to your feedback.

Looks spectacular! From the moment picked up TCBR all those years ago I've been hoping and hoping for South Mountain to get the TC treatment. Not really an important battle landmark, but is the Washington monument represented on the Fox's gap map? Keep up the superb work guys!


Yes, the Washington monument is there. I was thinking of including a screenshot of it, but I gotta leave some surprise. I was surprised and ecstatic when I first discovered it..

Jim, Dave, and I were at South Mountain and Antietam in October for research. We went up in the monument and the view is spectacular.
