THE CAMP 1525 WARGAMING CLUB
The Colonel Sherod Hunter Camp 1525 sponsors a Wargaming Club. What is "wargaming,"
you ask? Wargaming is a hobby wherein people interested in military history play
simulations, or games, of various periods of military history. The Camp 1525 Wargame Club,
being primarily composed of members of the Sons of Confederate Veterans, focuses on
simulating battles and campaigns of the War between the States.
Why would anyone want to do this? Players gain a greater understanding of military
strategy and tactics through these games, and they are a lot of fun, too!
Games most commonly take two forms...
Board games can be either tactical or strategic in focus, and, depending on the game,
can be played by two or more people.
TABLETOP BATTLE RECREATIONS
Table-top battle recreations (an example of which is shown being played by some of our
members in the photo above) are fought on a table top, rather than a game board, and
use simulated model terrain and model soldiers (also called military miniatures) instead of the
cardboard counters and maps used in board games. These games are always tactical in focus,
and can be played by several people, each commanding a Brigade or Division.
The Colonel Sherod Hunter Camp 1525 normally holds several games per year,
although they are not held monthly. All S.C.V. members are invited to attend and
participate. Additionally, if you are not a S.C.V. member and would like to get involved,
by all means, contact us for information about joining the Club.
