Made up of castoffs, convicts and locals, the Bedouins felt that now was the time to reclaim their homeland after decades of French rule! Abd el Meheddin set up at El Hammam and dared the Legion to attack. The French commander Lyautey hastily scraped together a force to suppress Meheddin. Whether they were thieves, shopkeepers, French Algerians or Parisians before, they were all Legionnaires now and a loss here would doom the colonies to revolt! We march for France! Pour la Legion! The game will start about 6 PM on Friday and about 9 to 12:30 on Saturday. It would be great if I were near the Brush with Nobility vendor tables so I can help out if needed!
