"Shot Heard 'Round the World" Day


Today commemorates the 236th anniversary of the Battles of Lexington and Concord.  Time to break out your Revolutionary War figures and boardgames!

A synopsis of events from British Battles:


While Wikipedia has a decent summary as well:


I currently have the following games in my collection:

1776, 1777-Year of the Hangman, Washington's War and Guilford's Courthouse. While I don't own any miniature figures, I do have the rules British Grenadier and the first 3 scenario supplements. 

What "revolutionary" games are on shelf?

Comments from Patriots and Loyalists welcome.

We game this period every now and again in 28mm, I like the period a lot and as an Irishman I am a Patriot.

I do too. While I love Napoleonics, I often find gaming battles in the AWI can be more managable than Napoleonics.
