|British storm Quebec Fortress|
With the loss of Quebec, Montcalm, one regiment of Regulars and one regiment of Militia march out from the city. The Cayuga are recruited to the British cause and move to Fort Oswego to join Amherst.
For the French portion of June 1758 turn, more than one activation is needed to reposition forces after the loss of Quebec. Rolling on the Command Table, an '8' is rolled giving the British one additional activation and preempting French activations. When it rains it pours! Faced with more than one option, the British decide to pursue Montcalm in an attempt to destroy his force before it can reach the relative safety of Trois Rivieres. Not wanting to risk his entire force to the potential ravages of attrition, Wolfe leaves one regiment of Regulars to garrison Quebec. Realizing his militia cannot outrun Wolfe and his party of regulars, Montcalm turns to face his pursuers. Game 16 in the series will be the pursuit and catching of Montcalm in the woods west of Quebec.
Pursuit of Montcalm:
British: Wolfe (A4D4), 3 x 5-6 Regulars
French: Montcalm (A4D4), 1 x 5-6 Regular, 1 x 3-5 Militia
Terrain: woods with clearings.
Will Montcalm make good his escape?
