12 October 1748

British and Spanish naval forces clash in the Battle of Havana, the last major action in the War of Jenkins Ear. In 1731 a British merchant, Robert Jenkins, was stopped off the coast of Florida by a Spanish patrol boat. Jenkins was accused by the Spanish commander, Juan de León Fandiño, of smuggling goods. Fandiño cut off Jenkins left ear and declared “Go, and tell your King that I will do the same, if he dares to do the same.” The action was perceived as an insult to the British and a casus belli for war between the two nations. The two sides vied for control of the Caribbean. The British were repulsed in an invasion of Florida in 1740 and the Spanish failed in seizing Georgia in 1742. As the War of Austrian Succession engulfed Europe in 1742, Britain and Spain focused the bulk of their efforts there. The Battle of Havana on 12 October 1748 was the last engagement of the war, with neither side gaining a clear victory. Peace was finally made in 1750 with the Treaty of Madrid; nearly twenty years after Jenkins lost his ear. See MoreSee Less

Dear Fellow Wargamers:

Welcome to our Fall 2017 edition! It’s been a great summer meeting and greeting folks at nearly all the major conventions from coast to coast and in between. We celebrated S&T’s 50th at several conventions including Historicon where we helped launch a board wargame section to their convention with a board game library of over 100 wargames. If you’re not attending any conventions, you’re missing out. There are now two wargame oriented conventions that go nine days (ConSimWorld Expo in Tempe, AZ and World Boardgame Championships at Seven Springs, PA) and both are in great vacation spots where you can bring the whole family and know there’s plenty to do while you game for a solid week. There’s plenty of smaller shows on weekends throughout the year so there are options for everyone. There’s also many clubs and game store play rooms with wargamers. So don’t be the guy from Chicago that contacted me to ask for help finding other wargamers because there are note in Chicago. There are a lot more wargamers and they are closer than you may think (I not only found multiple game stores with wargame nights and days on their game room schedules, but also found dozens of wargamers in Chicago including one just three blocks away!).

More information is in the dispatch! See MoreSee Less

He earned the award for conspicuous bravery during the Seven Days Battles (25 June-1 July 1862). Johnston was the only drummer in his division to come away with his instrument during the general rout. See MoreSee Less
