the CSA I've decided to garrison them with Texas Rangers (other than Ft. Gibson which I plan on making a fort and
always a depot that's well defended so I can build another depot a few regions up and cause a lot of trouble in
Kansas). Other than raiding I haven't found much good for the Rangers. I've stuck them in cavalry divisions to
bulk them up but I bet they melt like butter as garrison units. I suppose I'll find out.
Here's a side question: Anyone know why the Arkansas River doesn't extend up to Ft. Gibson? It was the first
town in Oklahoma to have a steamboat landing and is right next to the river which is navigable (at least now)?

I don't want to deal with that as the south so I usually go ahead and destroy the villages except for Ft. Gibson which is too far away to worry about.
Ace wrote:It is always beneficial for Union to raze them, and for the CSA to protect them since every year CSA gets up to 3 ind cav units (depending on the number of villages), and Indians are the best raiders you can get. But, playing as the Union I have never razed them, it would feel just plain wrong.

I'm not sure what the exact trigger is, but it happens when one or any of the 3 take a bunch of damage. I've had all 3 nearly destroyed and then got the "replacement for Indian regiments" or some such message in the ledger. Poof, 3 duplicate Indian regiments. It's been awile since I've seen it though so it might've been fixed.

I destroyed the depot that the union has in the Indian teritory area(cant recall its name) and have a single cav unit going from indian city razing them to the ground. Will secure my west boarder from the CSA by making supplies limited
