The Battle of Sharpeville - 1st August 1862

This is the map for the forthcoming "Battle of Sharpeville" (click the image to zoom in).

If you've missed the story of the build up to this encounter you should check out Wilderness Tavern (Dave's Confederate campaign blog) and Road To Appomattox (My Union campaign blog).

The battle starts at 11.00am on 1st August 1862 which gives us 16 turns until nightfall. As strategic attacker the onus is on Pope to get things rolling but somehow I doubt that Lee will be sitting tight so expect the unexpected with this one!

The fun should begin this week...


  1. I've been following this campaign with interest and look forward to the impending battle!

    Keep up the great work.


  2. looking forward to fight report.

  5. It's coming Phil - hang on!
