[Maps] Blitz_craig's N&S Historical Maps (3 Downloads)
« on: November 28, 2012, 10:34:13 pm »
The following maps are made for the North & South Mod for Warband Napoleonic Wars. They use scene props that are specific to the North and South module and therefore are not compatable with Napoleonic Wars or other modules in their present form.

Secessionville (Siege) 253 KB

Description: June 16th, 1862....After successfully capturing the ports of Beaufort and Port Royal, General David Hunter's Department of the South now has set its sights on capturing the cradle of secession itself, Charleston. To complete the task he sends two Union divisions under the direct command of General Henry W. Benham. Benham lands a division sized force at the southeast edge of James Island just a few miles south of Charleston. Here he encamps on the Grimball Plantation. The closest Confederate position is Tower Battery; named so because of the 75 ft. observation tower located just beyond it. This fortification protects a peninsula protruding towards Charleston's inner harbor. At the end of the peninsula is a summer village used by wealthy southern planters to escape the heat called Secessionville.  Confederates manning the Tower Battery position delight in lobbing shells into the Union camp. Benham recognizes the strategic importance of the position and decides to launch a "reconnaissance in force" although he has not received any orders from Hunter to make an attack. He sends roughly 3,500 troops to assault Tower Battery. The Confederates have only a few hundred defenders in the battery at first but reinforcements arrive via footbridge at Secessionville just before the attack begins. The battle rages for the next three hours and includes some hand to hand fighting at the top of Tower Battery's parapet. The Union attack fails with heavy losses and General Benham is brought up on charges of acting without orders. However, Benham's court-martial never proceeds as the Lincoln administration is reluctant to punish commanders for being aggressive.

Jenkins Ferry (Siege) 130 KB

Description: April 1864...In what would become know as the Red River Campaign, Union armies were to launch simultanious offensives from Little Rock, Arkansas and New Orleans, Louisiana meeting in the middle at Shreveport, thereby, cutting off Texas from the rest of the Confederacy and eliminating resistance to the Union in Louisiana. The southern prong however was turned back after its naval support could no longer make its way north due to the lower than normal levels of the Red River. This left the smaller northern prong led by gerneral Steele in southern Arkansas alone to face the combined weight of all Confederate forces in the Trans-Mississippi theater. He wisely decided to retreat to his fortified base at Little Rock. His progress was slow on the rain sodden, muddy roads and he was forced to pause to build a pontoon bridge in order to cross the water swollen Saline river at a place called Jenkins Ferry. Steele receives word that the Confederate main force has been sighted and will be on him in a few hours. He does not have time to finish the bridge and cross with his entire force so he will have to prepare a defense of felled trees (abatis) and makeshift baracades of logs, fence rails, sacks, and boxes, hoping he can hold off the rebels long enough. He assigns 4,000 infantry to man the defenses while the bridge construction is being competed. The Confederates have over 10,000 troops for the attack but the swampy terrain on the flanks only allows them to send in 3-4,000 men at a time. After attacks by numberous Confederate brigades fail to break the Union lines, the rebels call off further assaults. They have taken 1,000 casulties to the Unions 700. All of the Confederate brigade commanders involved in the separate attacks are either killed or wounded. Many other Confederate wounded are shot by the 2nd Kansas Colored Infantry in retaliation for the murder of black soldiers trying to surrender during earlier engagements in the campaign. Jenkins Ferry is not the largest battle fought in the Civil War but certainly one of the more violent.

Monocacy Junction (Siege) 205 KB

Description: July 1864...General Lee's Army of Northern Virginia is pinned down by Grant at Petersburg and is under increasing pressure as he tightens his noose around that city. To draw off Union troops taking part in the siege, Lee orders Jubal Early's Army of the Shenandoah to make an attack on the capital, Washington. As Early moves his 14,000 man force into Maryland, he extorts $200,000 from the town of Frederick to spare it from being sacked. The only Union force preparred to stop him from reaching Washington is a scratch force of some 5,800 men under the command of general Lew Wallace. Many of Wallace's troops are inexperienced 100 day men. However, the first installment of reinforcements sent north by Grant have just arrived in the form of one battle hardened brigade commanded by general Rickett's of VI corps. Wallace sets up a defensive position behind the Monocacy river. There are two bridges he must defend plus a ford. The bridges are defended by blockhouses and redoubts while the ford is watched by some Union cavalry. The Confederates attempts to sieze the bridges are repulsed, but a large force they send to the ford succeeds in gaining a foothold on the other side of the river. Fierce fighting for posession of the Worthington and Thomas farms that secure the Union flank rages for hours until numbers finally prevail and the flank collapses sending the Yankees fleeing to Baltimore. The road to Washington is now open but Early's men are exhasted from the hard fight and spend the night on the battlefield. This gives time for more Union reinforcements to arrive in the forts protecting Washington. Early arrives at Washington's defenses two days later only to find the forts well garrisoned. The delaying action at Monocacy has saved Washington.

The map is set up as a siege which should work well for portraying the delaying action of a superior force. The objective flag is in the yard of the mill complex that guards the main road to Washington. Defenders spawn in the camp next to the stone mill. Attackers spawn across the river behind the grove of trees on the Best farm. The river is impassable except by the bridges and ford. The covered bridge is destructable but the rail bridge is not.

I started reading more about the battle after seeing the Battle of Jenkins Ferry in the movie Lincoln. Brutal stuff. Good job on the map!

One of my direct ancestors was involved in the battle. He served in company B of the 9th Wisconsin Volunteer Infantry Regiment. His name was Nicholaus Kirsch. The 9th Wisconsin was unusual in that it was almost entirely made up of German speaking immigrants.
