Besides the people that lose their lives and limbs in all the wars, I wonder also about those who survive them. What kind of psychological damage do they have for the rest of their life? They are usually the ones who rebuild things. Wonder how much the society the survivors rebuild is sane and heal...

The Provisional Army actually is the main Confederate Army. That is to say there was the Regular Army (very small), the Provisional Army (raised from the various States) and Militia forces.

I tend to strongly disagree here. Of all ACW games on the market, this one probably has the best data base of regiments, brigades and such.

Where is it? The event where both sides field their state militias, Tennessee has none. This gives an advantage to the Federals as Tennessee has also a very low cap for volunteers also.

Were there ever leaderless bodies of troops in the ACW?? The answer is 'No, there weren't.'

hm, about the resources. I think I have to disagree. The CSA had a far inferior economical output compared to the Union. In the game, this doesn't make a real difference - wether or not to upgrade your economy. It should be reflected in the game. If you don't invest in your economy, you don't have ...

At the start of the 1862 campaign there is a colored brigade in Pennsylvania. Although the Union began to enlist blacks in some colored units during 1862, I do not believe there were any separate units, and certainly not of brigade strength, in March when the campaign begins. After the fall of New ...
