Some participants had difficulties to find the 1.01a Corinth patch.

You can find the patch at BG Tom Linquanti's HQ web page.
http://www.glinq54.com/acw/mods1/Corinth101patch.ZIP

Instructions to install the ACWCGDC scenarios can be found at:
http://www.brettschulte.net/ACWCGDC/AddOnSetup.htm

Here is a copy of a message send by LG Ernie Sands at the Tavern, it may help:

"There are 2 situations to consider.

1. If you are ONLY going to play MODS, then version 1.01a is all you need.

2. If you intend to play BOTH "normal" scenarios and MOD scenarios, then you MUST have two instances of CORINTH.

If you have a NEW install, without additions, here is the simplest way to set up for #2.

If you used the default install with CORINTH, then your game resides at C:/program files/HPS Simulations/campaign corinth. In WINDOWS Explorer, COPY the entire folder /Campaign Corinth to the C:/ drive. (This simply copies the entire game to another, different portion of the "C" drive.) For convenience sake, rename that new folder CORINTH_MOD (or some designation) and place a NEW shortcut on your desktop for that game.

Now, apply the V1,01a update to the CORINTH_MOD folder (make sure your alter the default to point to the correct folder).

Also, apply the LATEST HPS patch to your other, normal game folder.

Now, you have 2 seperate games for Corinth.

Major Lajoie,

I would like to volunteer to take Gen'l Burke's place for the BGBR03 scenario. Please let me know if this is acceptable. One potential problem is that I will be travelling from August 1 to August 18 and will not have access to a computer. I can turn moves around daily or several times a day until 8/1 and after 8/18.

Hal, fellow Gentlemen and You pitiable Yankees as well. [:p]

Palmito Ranch.

With a Nod to Brig. Gen. Ross McDaniel, AoG, for pointing me in the direction of the site - I would recommend a visit here:

http://www.geocities.com/wilburngenealo ... ranch.html

As the excerpt below explains, this was the last Land Battle of the ACW. And I got to thinking . . . would it not make an excellent Final Battle for the HACW1 Tournament?

Would one or p'raps a team of our esteemed Cartographers/Scenario Builders consider "mocking up" a version of this Battle for the Tourney, if it is considered worthy of inclusion? [;)]

I have NO experience in this Field, else I'd do it meself! [:o)]

However, I would be prepared to assist in any way I could, upto and including dredging thru' sites for OOB's, Terrain features etc. [xx(]

Just a Thought in passing . . . . [:D]

Oh! And Hal . . . . Please put my name down on the Valverde shingle . . . for the Confederacy of course!

Thanks. [8D]

<i> Battle Of Palmito Ranch "The Last Battle Of The War" May 12 - 13, 1865
The war was ending quietly in the far south of Texas. A month had passed since Lee's surrender in Virginia, and anticipating the end of the war, the Union and Confederate forces around Brownsville observed an informal truce. Then the inexperienced Col. Theodore H. Barrett arrived at Brazos Santiago Post to take command of the Union forces in the area. Barrett had direct orders not to initiate any military action, but his ambition would not allow the war to end before he gained his share of the glory.

On May 12, Barrett led a mixed force of 800 black and white Union infantry and cavalry in attacking a Confederate outpost on the banks of the Rio Grande at Palmito Ranch, 12 miles from Brownsville, and captured the place. The Confederate troops, who had done nothing to break the unofficial truce or provoke a battle, consisted of about 350 ragtag cavalrymen called the Cavalry of the West, under the command of former Texas Ranger Col. John S. "Rip" (for Rest In Peace) Ford. Ford counterattacked and forced the blue troops back out of the Confederate camp. The next morning Barrett returned and again attacked and took the camp at Palmito Ranch. In midafternoon, Ford and his determined troopers counterattacked Barrett's soldiers again, and again forced them to with draw. This time Ford's men pursued the disorganized retreat back toward Brazos Island and took many prisoners. Ford called off the pursuit when his horses got tired. The Confederates suffered only five minor wounds in the skirmish at Palmito Ranch, while 30 Union soldiers were killed or wounded and another 113 were captured.

The last fighting by land forces of any size during the war, Palmito Ranch was a Confederate victory. Its outcome had absolutely no bearing on the war and was a useless waste of life. Regardless of which side had won or whether the engagement was even fought, the war was ending all the same.
