Give Us Victories – The Chancellorsville Campaign, Virginia, 1863

Publisher Dissimula Edizioni‘s Give Us Victories – The Chancellorsville Campaign takes place after the Union loss at Fredericksburg the previous December. President Lincoln had relieved General Ambrose Burnside and replaced him with the popular General Joseph Hooker. Lincoln had confidence that Hooker could rally the demoralized troops and bring about a Union victory. In the spring of 1863, the Army of the Potomac (Union Army), executed a successful and daring maneuver to outflank the Confederate Army of Northern Virginia, commanded by General Robert E. Lee. There were high hopes for the Union forces. The rest is history!

“Give Us Victories” is a quote from the letter with which President Lincoln appoints General Hooker to command the Army of the Potomac. This game allows us to simulate this battle and possibly change the course of history. Players assume Lee and Hooker’s roles and maneuver their forces around the map, trying to engage the enemy’s forces, defeat them and gain victory and glory!
