Flames Across the Valley recreates the raid on the Schoharie Valley in October, 1780, by the British forces under Sir John Johnson. Three forts guard the valley, places of refuge and defense. Can the forts be taken and destroyed, the defenders scattered? Will the militia and Continental troops stand fast against the enemies of liberty? Can the invaders be prevented from burning every barn and house in sight? Return to the cold and snowy day of October 17, 1780 to once more do battle. From rules introduction.
