Sean,

You stated:

"The Chickasaw Wars were among the worst of the era, and were a heavy blow to French colonial expansion."

How many, if any, of the scenarios will be from the Chickasaw Wars?

Thanks. and looking forward to the expansion...

From the blog post: "Artillery became much more lethal after 1749"

Why is that?

"During the mid-eighteenth century the role of artillery in battle
increased dramatically. The average number of guns per thousand
combatants more than tripled between the 1730s and the Seven Years
War, reaching a level that most European powers would maintain
through the Napoleonic period. (See Table 1.) The guns themselves
became more specialized for use in field battle. Two powers in particular
carried smoothbore artillery toward the limits of its technological
possibilities as a battlefeld weapon: Austria, during the period between
1749 and 1756, and France, in the decade or so after the Seven Years
War. Both the Austrian and French advances emphasized light but
powerful field guns, with high tactical and operational mobility."
