Here the truceless armies yet / Trample, rolled in blood and sweat; / They kill and kill and never die; / And I think that each is I. // None will part us, none undo / The knot that makes one flesh of two, /

Sick with hatred, sick with pain, / Strangling -- When shall we be slain? // When shall I be dead and rid / Of the wrong my father did? / How long, how long, till spade and hearse / Puts to sleep my mother's curse?

Laszlo,

Given the popularity and success on [geekurl=http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1280624810/the-guns-of-gettysburg]Kickstarter[/geekurl] of the latest game design from Bowen Simmons, The Guns of Gettysburg, I was wondering if you had considered launching a Kickstarter funding-campaign for _Baptism at Bull Run_?

If you didn't know, Bowen is releasing a 2nd edition of Bonaparte at Marengo; that game has been out of print for some time, and Bowen felt there was enough interest and also improvements he could make to release a new edition. As fans of your game know, _Baptism at Bull Run_ uses a modified _Bonaparte at Marengo_ system, so your game will have at least one other popular game available for new & current fans of either / both games, and perhaps your game could find new interest among the backers of _Guns of Gettysburg_.

This is just something I was wondering whether you had considered doing - I believe you previously said you were looking for a printer for your game. Anyways, thanks for reading this!

David

I forgot to mention a reason that prompted me to suggest this idea. A few days ago, someone created a GeekList of the Top 10 First Battle of Bull Run Games.

The list creator, among others, had never heard of _Baptism at Bull Run_, so I posted the links to this game on BGG and also for the B@BR Cyberboard files. Anyways ...
