(from the back of the box:)
On to Richmond! is an exciting game of strategy and maneuver. McClellan has overwhelming force at first, but Richmond is a long way off and the rainy season has just begun. Meanwhile reinforcements from all over the south are arriving in Richmond under the command of General Joseph Johnston. Waiting in the wings is a Confederate general by the name of Robert E. Lee.
