Hi,

Found this. I have no idea how good it is. Apparently the company has a couple other Civil War games as well.

I think only the US player can get points for exiting and American flag exit hex. To get points for exiting, a Reb player would need an exit hex with a Confederate flag.

Hi, I did some checking and found that only friendly artillery will cause you a problem with movement. I used Chancellorsville to do the checking but I think all the games are the same by now. I spiked a Union battery on a woods trail. Union had to pay woods cost to go through it. Confederate units ...

Mike, I hadn't realized that captured artillery could be fired by the capturing side without first deducting manpower to recrew the guns. Is that actually the case? And if so, would you feel better about the option if a deduction were made? Hi, Joe, I have run tests in the past that indicate that t...

For me, the isolation option is the worst, and I don't use it. I understand the concept, but looking at the time frame of a turn, most times the isolated units wouldn't even know they were isolated at the time they suffer the effects of isolation. Also, in too many cases in history isolated units pe...

There is a thread for naming the western Confederate army over at Confederate headquarters, and only about a dozen officers have weighed in. If you have any interest in what our army is called, go here.

If you read "Where the South Lost the Civil War" by Kendall Gott, it depicts Pillow as a high-energy general who worked hard to make Fort Donelson defensible, and who was responsible for the successful attack on Grant's forces. Of the Confederate generals involved in the whole Fort Donelso...

I don't see the performance of Confederate leaders, with a few exceptions, of being all that bad. You should take into account that this was the only battle except for the Seven Days where the ANV was on the offensive throughout. Fredricksburg and Antietam were almost exclusively defensive battles, ...

Here is a reason the Confederacy could not afford to shortchange the defense of Virginia.

Also, if Virginia fell, there would be no reason for the Yanks to divert so many troops to the defense of Washington.

Hi, Sounds like a team effort, don't it? I'm thinking Gettysburg did the most to bring on the Gettysburg battle because with so many roads converging there it was a natural concentration point for armies. I read even before Heth went to Gettysburg looking for shoes Lee had already ordered a concentr...

Hi, General, My personal favorite in the South is Vicksburg, Miss. What sets it apart is the USS Cairo, the ironclad they raised from the bottom of the Yazoo River. After that, Chickamauga-Chattanooga, which are pretty close together. Then Shiloh, which is a bit off the beaten path. But there are a ...

Hi, McClellan's main claim to fame, and what got him the promotion to commander of the AoP, was the campaign in West Virginia. That was really the first Union victory of the war. Of course, there wasn't a whole lot of fighting in that campaign, and in the battle at Rich Mountain the Confederates wer...

Here is a link to a painting I have always liked since I saw it on the cover of a Civil War Times-Illustrated many years ago.

It is by an artist named Howard Pyle, and the subject was the Battle of Nashville.
