1475-1820 Missouri Compromise & Compromise 1850
Compiled by fredthebear
--*--

This is another Fredthebear collection split.

Most of Gioachino Greco's games are in the NN collection due to unknown opponents. Greco's games are worthy of study, a violent precursor to attacking artists Adolph Anderssen and Paul Morphy. These two giants take part in a King's Gambit section at the bottom of the list.

* Here's a link to Paul Morphy Miniatures:
