American Heritage Battle Cry Civil War Game

board game

In the 1960s Milton Bradley Company published a series of history-based board games, with endorsement or cooperation from the American Heritage Publishing Company. Each game dealt with a different period in American history, usually a famous battle from either the Revolutionary or Civil War. These were war and strategy games, although simpler in design and play than similar games published by the 3M company at that time. The firm re-released the game series during the 1970s, just prior to the American Bicentennial in 1976. This particular game comes from that latter series.
