year 1754 April
Capt. Dumas at Presque Isle is arragging various war parties to harasse villages south of the Ohio frontier and put the British colonies under terror.

from the village of Kittanning a war party under the command of M. Daniel-marie d'Iberville-Rochefort ( aka La Verdure ) is ready to move.

His target is a little village of Huntingdon at the head of the Juniata Valley.

La Verdure war party
M. d'Iberville
2nd in CC Lt. Pierre Hertel
Chief of Kittanning Chevalier de la Grimace aka Ganataragoin
80 Militiamen
180 Native Indians

the war party is in march paddling down river


moving through the vast forest is really dangerous


portage are very common





On the 1oth may the war party reached the Juniata Valley.


After a rest for checking weapons and equipments the raiders wait for the early morning to delivered the attack.

News of the war party has reached the village of Huntingdon by a friendly Indian, but M. d'Iberville has arranged a clever and simple plan, with his 2nd in CC Hertel approaching the village from south to the less protect part of the village.




the villagers fought bravely and shoot deadley (?)






but the Hertel group bring unspected surprise from the south side and change the battle in a massacre





the village was burnt and many villagers were taken prisoners.

the battle was a solo game , that is part of a campaign.
the first photos are from my battles record, second part are from the battle played over the week end.
Rule used is TSATF , version In the Forest plus modifications made by me.
it was a pleasant game , with the Americans very unlucky with dice through, which bring the battle in a easy victory for the french side.

the Defenders


the Raiders




M. Daniel Marie d'Iberville-Rochefort dit La Verdure in Indian Dress


that's the story
