Hey Chris - just want to post a note saying thanks for the AAR and I'm that I'm lurking, er reading. Thanks for explaining your thoughts as we go along - that's helpful to a noob like me. I don't understand Daniel's move to reinforce the Beaver Dam area unless he has as many troops as Grant had sold...

Thanks for the clarification about brigade colors. I've had some of these games since the 90s and I still haven't pushed all the buttons...

This will be a long game. I think I read on the forums that the 'record' is about 150 turns or so. I'm be reading intently.

Chris,

Do you use a mod to get your unit counters to display as different colors? If so, which one. I usually don't install mods but I might if it's stable.

Good game; it is odd (but strangely satisfying) to see CSA troops rout.

Well, Chris and I decided to put me out of my misery. I offered a termination bid, so I'll get to see the next steps. The game went ahead and credited him with the artillery, so the score went well into CSA 'Major Victory'. If anyone has comments or critiques I welcome them. I've asked Chris to look...

It's turn 15 of 18 and even though the Victory points say I'm not losing, they don't tell the whole story. Here is the Victory dialog: https://i.imgur.com/BNTo2xk.jpg The image is from the start of the turn and I actually gained points during my turn, however, the victory points don't include the un...

Christian - thanks for the explanation. Ack, that means the entire game I've been handicapping my guys by having infantry with my corps artillery. I don't think it would have mattered, but still... I guess even though this isn't a 'training game', thanks to my opponent I'm getting schooled. I just h...

Daniel - I like the added touch of noting that the Iron Brigade played "The Campbell's are Coming" (just as at Gettysburg in real life). I'm playing 'Wayne' for my first PBEM and he is a tough opponent.

Nice to see you writing an AAR and pleased that you figured out the image posting. Good (or bad I guess) to see that your whupping me isn't a one-off but is your usual style. Well done.

I was out of pocket for a few days - went to Murfreesboro Tennessee and visited the Stones River Battlefield. Since the battle was fought in late December / early January the park usually has a nice program this time of year (re-enactors; artillery, cavalry, and infantry demonstrations; an encampmen...

Thank you for the encouragement Mark. I think I need it after the last turn. The confederate troops marched over my troops as if they were on parade. I'd like to compliment my opponent Chris for his troop handling. My 'lines' melted; 600-man regiments ran; the ones that ran the previous turn ran aga...

I'll post another map at 15 or 16 of 18, then the final map. I think I have one more monkey roll left in the time remaining. Paul will rejoin the 2nd Division (~two turns), Rowley will form the right at the crossroads (Martinsburg Pike and Hopewell Road,~one turn), Meredith's Iron Brigade will form ...

It's turn 12 of 18, here is the Victory dialog: https://i.imgur.com/hn3SaBI.png Here is the map: https://i.imgur.com/MOczGx0.png I've added some road names, which I should have done much earlier. Also note that I don't know if those would have been the correct contemporary names. Some of my guys rou...

The game is heating up and it seems I may have to fall-back to the positions noted previously. I plan to post a turn 12 of 18 report (with maps) when we run that turn. The CSA has at least three brigades plus artillery advancing on the left at Old Charles Town Road. I think that my troops will have ...

We are about halfway through the game and closing to battle. CSA cavalry tried to scout the Hopewell road and found Paul's brigade and some Napoleons. Everyone likes to shoot at cavalry, so everyone who could, did. Here is the Victory screen: https://i.imgur.com/Q8HlCXU.jpg Here is the map with poss...

It's "Raid" turn 7 of 18. The CSA went through the Chic Fil A drive through SW of Stephenson and seem to be maneuvering for an attack en masse (as they should :) I spotted an additional CSA brigade SW of Stephenson. Here is the Victory screen: http://i.imgur.com/loV9t1p.png Here is the map...
