Fire & Fury: The High Ground
  Strangely, for a Colonial gaming club, 'Fire & Fury' is perhaps the most popular rules set with the membership. Consequently, there is at least one F&F Civil War game every month. This means from the editor's standpoint; 1.) He's always way behind on updating the web site (which does not necessarily have anything to do with Civil War Gaming), 2.) There are lots of games, with lots of tiny figures that are difficult to photograph, 3.) And he now has so many photos that he's no longer certain which images come from which games. The editor promises (This time for sure!) to do better next month. At right, the red brick building is the seminary from Gettysburg, but this probably isn't the Battle of Gettysburg. Behind the seminary Major Weenie, this time in the guise of General Abner Doubleday - who some time during the game is scheduled to invent Baseball - struggles to entrench his weak division of only 2 brigades. In the foreground a huge division of highly motivated Confederates surges towards someone's misplaced libation. Meanwhile, Col. Winky gestures dramatically with the golf glove that indicates the manner in which he spent the afternoon immediately before the game.   game0404.jpg
 
  At right, Rebel artillery, from a game which escapes the editor's memory, probably shelling Major Weenies hapless command to pieces... Again.   game0405.jpg
