The current situation that invariably occurs in every game is lone cavalry regiments swarming all over the map across every state, cutting every rail line and occupying any empty city. This independent, unlimited range cavalry is a nuisance and not super realistic.

Even corps stationed next to a region with a depot are starving in the field. The depot at Fredericksburg only two regions from Richmond never has any storage.

He doesn´t know, but when I played as CSA, I lost 4 full divisions because food lack, and I had very much train points, the railway lines and depots intact
How do you counter the effects of cavalry raids IMHO is the question.

The CSA starves at this scenario without enemy cavalry raids. If the enemy does cavalry raids, cuts the railroads and burns strategic depots, then the CSA loses his forces turn to turn, and is only the 1862 year.
I as CSA built 17 divisiones and lost 4 by starve; it is about 25% from my forces and I had that purchase light industry at Virginia and N.Carolina, because I needed some food more.
That was my awful situation and I controlled all the rail lines (with enough train points) and almost all my start depots. As USA, I´m playing with great number of cavalry regiment destroying all the rear of CSA forces, burning his depots, destroying all his railroads and taking small cities (producting food) and burning his reserves; I think that Runyan must not have got not even for a ham sandwich.
