Wish I could say something witty snd funny but truth be told I was just brain dead. I should have posted that I was looking for a copy of The whites of their eyes rules by Steve Haller. These came out in the 1970’s and were published by The Courier (first edition Courier not the glossy second edition which was reestablished in the 1980’s). Steve Haller was the original editor for their american revolution theme.

They weren’t really very good esp. by today’s standards but I enjoyed Steve’s columns on the AWI in the original Courier magazine and I owe a love of the period to him. he came out with an interesting campaign idea that was printed as well in the new Courier.

Ok! Finally tracked down a set of the rules and the author. As the Green Knight said the author wrote a nice series about AWI gaming in the old original edition of the courier back in the 1970’s. They helped to create a life long interest in and fascination about the AWI and evan a career of 30 years with the NPS. So thank you go those who helped with this!
