Are you talking about wargaming inspiration specifically, novels, movies and etc as inspiration for games?

I would like to see some pictures of games played in the past of this genre.

Which King George were you thinking of? Britain had several, and most of them fought a war or two!

I'd imagine he's referring to the one between 1744 - 1748 in North America considering he asked about Queen Anne's as well, but I could be wrong.

If you search here on LAF under Dearfield you will find some really good pictures of an AAR for the Dearfield Massacre.

This may be of interest to you. It's a wargamer with a real interest in the history of Rangers and light infantry in North America. I'd never really taken an interest in the conflicts outside of Wolfe and Washington, but this fella provides interesting content. This one covers the very early Ranger companies-

With a glorious swish of his sword and his lance
And a glorious clank of his tin-plated pants. - Dr. Seuss
