Reconstructing the Revolution

I’ve added a new link to the blogroll that merits your attention.  It’s called A Miniature History of the American Revolution, and it’s fascinating.   The author (who uses the nom de plume “AD”) is documenting his efforts to reconstruct the war’s battles with small figures, using in-depth research in both primary and secondary sources.  His current project is the 1781 Battle of Cowpens, a personal favorite of mine.

You might be thinking that it’s primarily a wargaming site.  Not so—although I’d imagine that wargamers would love it, too.  This blog is more of a research project, an effort to understand what happened on the field and to depict the results in three dimensions.  If you’re a Rev War enthusiast like me (particularly when it comes to the war in the South), then check it out.  I think it’s one of the best ideas for a military history blog that I’ve ever seen.
