MTSC PRODUCT SPOTLIGHT: The Art of War: 'Bushy Run' from W. Britain

The Battle of Bushy Run was fought on August 5-6, 1763, in western Pennsylvania during Pontiac's Rebellion was one of the most memorable moments in North American colonial military history. A small force of British were attacked on their way to the relief of besieged Fort Pitt. Bouquet's resolute Highlanders of the famed 42nd Regiment of Foot (The Black Watch) turned calamity into victory through sheer bravery and the wielding of cold steel despite being surrounded by a large combined force of Delaware, Shawnee, Mingo, and Huron warriors.
Based on the original painting by Don Troiani, W. Britains bring The Battle of Bushy Run to life with three new three figure sets and complimentary single figures. This welcome edition to the ever expanding Clash of Empires range is now available.

Clash of Empires: Pontiac's Rebellion
Pontiac's Rebellion was a war that was launched in 1763 by a loose confederation of elements of Native American tribes primarily from the Great Lakes region, the Illinois Country, and Ohio Country who were dissatisfied with British postwar policies in the Great Lakes region after the British victory in the French and Indian War (1754–1763). Warriors from numerous tribes joined the uprising in an effort to drive British soldiers and settlers out of the region. The war is named after the Odawa leader Pontiac, the most prominent of many native leaders in the conflict.

The war began in May 1763 when Native Americans, offended by the policies of British General Jeffrey Amherst, attacked a number of British forts and settlements. Eight forts were destroyed, and hundreds of colonists were killed or captured, with many more fleeing the region. Hostilities came to an end after British Army expeditions in 1764 led to peace negotiations over the next two years. Native Americans were unable to drive away the British, but the uprising prompted the British government to modify the policies that had provoked the conflict.
