Has anyone thought about creating a scenario for this battle?

I know it's a famous US victory, but wasn't it largely the British walking forward against a fortified canal line along the entire front? That doesn't make for an interesting game, and there were less than 14,000 men engaged (combined,both sides). Often well-known actions, full of heroics and historical significance, just don't work as wargames. I will take a closer look sometime.
