The British Armies in America are a free representation of the British forces that fought in the French and Indian War (1754-1763), the American Revolutionary War (1775-1783), the War of 1812 (1812-1815). We are a member of the Colonial Campaigns Club , devoted to playing by e-mail or online John Tiller Software / HPS Simulations computer wargames "Campaign 1776", "The War of 1812", "The French and Indian War", and "The Mexican American War". Additionally, the club also has many members devoted to playing "Birth of America", "Birth of American II: Wars in America" and "Rise of Prussia" from AGEOD.
The British Armies in America consist of about 50 wargamers, many of them also re-enactors or just generally interested in the history of the campaigns fought in North America from ca. 1750 to 1815. They engage in battle with their counterparts in the Colonial (American), French, and Indian Alliance armies in the Colonial Campaigns Club. By successfully completing e-mail or online games, as well as by contributing to the administration of the club, or by instructing newcomers in the tips and tricks of wargaming the North American campaigns, members gain club points which serve as a measure of their experience and their involvement. According to the number of points accumulated, members are awarded historical military ranks which thus are an outward sign of the standing of a member in the community. For club purposes, members also serve as commanders of historical British army units that fought in the North American campaigns. These ranks and units, while being historical, are only an instrument of adding contemporary atmosphere and flavour to our lives and the achievements and sacrifices of the men who actually fought in these wars.
