Rebels and Redcoats recreates the battlefields of the American Revolutionary War. The war began in 1775 when the American colonies rebelled against the British Empire, declaring their independence in 1776. In the following years, Britain tried to end the revolt and recapture the American territories. The rebels however had support from Europe, with France and Spain later joining the war as allies to their cause. A decisive American victory at Yorktown in 1781 broke the British resolve and was a catalyst in starting peace negotiations. The war ended in 1783 with the signing of the Treaty of Paris and global recognition of the sovereignty of the United States.

Ratings and Reviews
Great game, until Brandywine.
Even after attempting several options, there was no American win ,nor close win, in this scenario. This scenario needs major repair and someone to test it.
Love the game.
Love this game. Would like to see a French and Indian War game like it.
Really great, but...
The overall game is very fun, and well made. Just a couple of things I hope you'll fix:
-The brandywine scenario is way too difficult, 16 turns? I can't complete that.
-The hessian uniforms are incorrect. Why are they red, and not blue? I thought they were British soldiers. Please make new models for the hessian soldiers. If you do not know, just look it up. That is something that I'd be so happy to see! It would be so awesome if you made at least two more, one for the grenadiers and one for the normal infantry. If you could, tweak the hessian grenadiers so that they deal more melee damage because the hessian grenadiers were known for they're skills with the bayonet.
Other than those small details, the game is great! Definitely would recommend!
