There was no light infantry in the Civil War. A few units still had light infantry in their name but they were the same as any other infantry unit.

10 to 1 is what was the ratio in Vietnam for the US, but I don't have hard facts to back my words (remembering that from previous reading).

The ratio of teeth to tail (soldier to support) is a lot lower (something like 3:1)

I don't know where you got 3:1. 10:1 is more like it.

Soccercw, Yes, the Mad Minute game also shows the style of fighting, all based on close knit lines. But still, I can't help but think to myself, when I see two lines facing each other at close range, doing volley fire, that if one of the lines were to drop to the ground and fire from there, they'd ...

You know, I did enjoy the movie Glory. One of the things that surprized me in it was to see the fighting style of the Civil War. When the black unit has its first engagement with the enemy, they form a line , and the enemy just in front of them too, and then they start shooting at each other. But i...

They could be built by region like ships and they cost way too much and take much too long to build. At most a division HQ would have a few wagons. There's no need for a high war supplies cost or manpower cost.

Grant did command an army in early 1862. I don't see a problem with him commanding the AoP but the North does need to take a morale hit for dismissing McClellan

Grant has shown up in every game that I've played as a 3 star with an army HQ. I've never seen Grant as a 2 star.

Select the Army HQ and use synchronized movement then go back and select the corps you want to stay and delete the move. You could remove the corps from the army but it would then lose any bonuses given by the army commander.
