They establish themselves in Richmond. Lord Roath pursues Col. Jackson to Fredrick, Maryland where Jackson is forced to give battle. After a fierce, two day battle, Jackson retreats, with less than one thousand men, towards Pittsburgh. Lord Roath, happy with the campaigning season's success marched back and winters in Baltimore. General Grey departs the successful battlefield of Albany and marches east to Boston. After a few skirmishes with American forces, General Grey begins the siege of Boston.

Very nice. I would suggest making maps, especially if your doing a war, since it makes the action much easier to understand.
