This game was from Wednesday Night I've been busy with dad and husband stuff, so I haven't had a chance to write it up. I adjusted this scenario from the main rule book. The US Navy needs to anchor three ships in the harbor for two turns. They also need to stop at least half of the pirate ships form escaping for a major victory.
The United States Navy closes in on the Barbary corsair haven. Pirates scramble to get their ships out of harbor and out to sea.
Two Brigs and one of the Xebecs escape the US ships glide into the harbor suppressing the two batteries with fire. The Martello tower continues to fire but they do not have enough guns to sink all the targets. The USS President will need an extensive refit and the USS United States will also need repairs. The Chesapeake will probably need drafts from the other ships or US merchants as she suffered significant casualties in boarding the Crescent. Of the other US frigates only, Boston took significant damage. A major American Victory.
