Battle of Chippawa

July 5, 1814 the anniversary of the Battle of Chippawa.  Possibly one of the more interesting battles of the War of 1812.  From a tactical view point of view.   It is also a battle which has fascinated me and a battlefield I have visited multiple times.

From a wargamer point of view it is fun battle to refight on the table top.  The terrain is Interesting, and both armies evenly balanced. Very colorful uniforms and troop types.  I highly recommend it!

Here, for the anniversary are some pictures from past games I have hosted.  In addition big you are interested in visiting this well preserved battlefield here is my review of my tour last year.


  1. This pick always inspires me to replay this battle....
    So I'm off to the basement

  2. Great stuff Mark. I have a game based loosely on the Niagara Campaign coming up towards the end of the month so this post and the post on the battlefield visit has given me a few ideas.

    1. I have been following the progress of your getting ready for the campaign on your blog. The first especially is outstanding. I am most excited for you and look forward to his it turns out. Good luck!

  3. Lovely pictures Mark...
    There are some great little actions in the War of 1812...
    This is a period I would like to return to... I should really have hung on to my old collection...

    All the best. Aly

  4. Thank you for the kind words! It is a most colorful and fun period on the Table top. I hope you get to return to it someday.
