REVOLUTIONARY WAR MAP SIMULATION PROJECT
In preparation for war…
Your commanding officer has ordered you to complete the following;
Students will choose a map from the text that they, as “cartographers”, would recommend to either King George III or General George Washington as a map to plan the upcoming war strategy.
Student/cartographers will then create their own rough draft of a map they will create for the commander of either the British/loyalist, or Colonial/patriot armed forces. This map will identify the British/loyalist and Colonial/patriot strongholds.
Student/cartographers will then create a final draft of the map for presentation to their superior officers.
Strategy Simulation for the American Revolutionary War
80,000 American Colonial Troops
40 American Colonial Naval Ships
50,000 British Troops
30,000 Hessian Troops allied with Great Britain
133 British Naval Ships
Each army gets
16 pieces representing 5,000 troops each
The British Navy Total 130 ships
American Colonial Total 40 ships
On the maps you created in class, in alternating turns, place your troops, one piece at a time, in the colonies. Then place your navies along the coastline of the colonies in the same manner,. Your opponent will do the same on their map, or you may use the same map. Then roll the dice to see which player goes first, high number wins.
Player A chooses where to attack. You must have an equal amount of soldiers or navies to attack an area (5k vs 5k, 10k vs 10k, or 5 ships vs 5 ships). Then roll the dice with high number as the victor, players “battle” over the areas/colonies. After each roll or “battle” the losing army or navy is removed. The attacking colony must have at least two pieces on it to attack. If the colony is defeated the winner must move at least one piece in to occupy the colony. Winner of the battle then rolls/attacks next. Before the next battle each player may move three pieces to refortify their positions. When moving pieces they must share a border or direct coastline to the area being moved into. The game ends when no battles can be waged, or control of the colonies is secured.
