My Battle of Monocacy wargame at the recent Fall-In gaming convention at Gettysburg

Gettysburg, for the final time in the foreseeable future, hosted the annual Fall-In wargaming convention at the Eisenhower Resort and Conference Center on Business 15. More than 1000 gamers spend 2-3 days rolling dice and moving tiny model soldiers on model railroad / diorama quality tabletop terrain using rules that loosely simulate the tactics of combat.
The convention is moving from Adams County to Lancaster in November 2010.
