Great to see some AAR's on this series. Note that Cedar Mt. is actually the mountain near the lower edge of the map. The ridge you are fighting for is in reality nothing more than a very slight change of slope coming from the west toward the east. Not sure why the map designers made it so prominent...

I am surprised at the Union lacking artillery ammo. Usually they have enough not to have to worry. Which may be what got him. Didn't realize soon enough how limiting it was. Main thing needed on artillery ammo use is better AI selections than minimum, random, and fire at everything. I would like to...

Thanks muchly for taking the time to post this AAR! In olden days when Talonsoft was king a few series replays were posted, but the turns were uploaded. Both players commented and an observer posted neutral commentary. Don't know which way is better, but any way is better than no way. Thanks again ...

The overall result doesn't surprise me, in turn gameplay the attacker usually has the upper hand and the defender isn't able to get out of his defense what he deserves. If the Union artillery ammo is correct, and I doubt that a bit because he ran out of it before noon, it's just another proof becau...

CSA Turn 55 (12:20 PM) Game Ended Game called by Daniel. He was more then willing to continue but had to admit his cause seemed hopeless. He had no real possible escape routes for his corps north of the Chickahominy and had been without artillery ammo for about the last ten turns. With the loss of s...
