An attractive General Grant board game turned from American walnut with a full complement of 32 period handcrafted clay marble game pieces. This example measures approximately 8 7/8 inches in diameter and remains in pleasing condition yet with good evidence of period use. A similar to the old Fox & Geese peg board solitaire game that was so popular in the period of the American Revolution, this game was played utilizing marbles rather than pegs as with its earlier cousin but with the same principal of jumping one game piece with another. A successful player would finish the game with only one game piece left on the board. A popular solitaire game of strategy among the military, the Civil War era marble variation became commonly known as the General Grant Game as it was a favorite diversion of the hard drinking cigar smoking Civil War Union Commander. This outstanding example is in pleasing condition with a full complement of period clay marbles. Buy with confidence! We are pleased to offer a no questions asked three day inspection with return as purchased on direct sales! Just send us a courtesy e-mail to let us know your item will be returned per these provisions and your purchase price will be refunded accordingly. Thanks for visiting Gunsight Antiques!
