High School Crusaders: the rules

When I do a classroom simulation, I need to use rules that can be taught quickly to gaming novices, some with little to no interest in military history.

The combat system has more than a whiff of Hail Caesar, and the morale system was inspired by Johnny Reb.  Hopefully, it can be explained on the chart below...
