Actually for the US expired enlistments were a factor all thru the war - 1 and 2 year hitches were up in 1863 and a lot of 3 year enlistments expired in 1864. I think it would be good to see this modelled. S! EC :thumbsup: Excellent point. Armies continue to grow with no attrition due to enlistment...

As a Federal officer I'd of course love to see AACW2 named "War of the Rebellion", but I am afraid it would never do.

I hope everyone that is concerned about the South conducting ahistorical raids will willing accept the same restrictions on the North. Because it is equally frustrating to have numerous Union regiments running around behind the lines.

I have also noticed that after it does bombard, the unit reverts back to a no bombard status; otherwise, it will stay selected until the unit bombards an enemy fleet. This can be frustrating if you are trying to protect a river and forget to check your batteries guarding them every turn. Regards, Cp...

One of the things to consider is that the Army never really had the command levels as they say they should be, even to this day, a brigade is commanded by a colonel versus a brigadier general.

The strength rating does not take into account the leader modifier. So, if a leader conveys a 20% modifier, the strength on the map may say 500, but the overall strength display of units to the player will show 600. At least, that is what is happening in my game.
