Historical Background

In June, Clinton and Knyphausen planned to make a second attempt on Washington’s main encampment at Morristown. Knyphausen would drive north, while Clinton moved up the Hudson. If Washington moved to attack Knyphausen, Henry would come ashore and trap Washington. Washington was not in the area, and opposing Knyphausen’s advance was Nathanael Greene. Greene’s plan ws to position his troops so the British would have to breakthrough a series of positions before making it to Hobart Gap. As the British advanced down the Galloping Hill Road and Vauxhall Road, they contacted Greene’s troops. As planned, as the fighting escalated along a road, the Continental forces fell back to a new defensive position. Realizing his advance up the Vauxhall Road was as far as he could go, Mathew turned back to join Knyphausen, who had taken Springfield. It was now about two oçlock in the afternoon when Knyphausen and Mathew decided that to continue the fight would be futile.
The stage is set. The battle lines are drawn and you are in command. The rest is history?

Springfield Scenario (Page 16)
Note: Unfortunately, the combined tile manifest of the Core Game and Expansion 1 is short one LeftTurnout Road / Left-Turnout River Tile. There are two Left-Turnout Road / Left-Turnout River Tiles in
the combined Core Game and Expansion 1 tile manifest. The Springfield Scenario calls for the placement
of two Left-Turnout Road Tiles and one Left-Turnout River Tile
