1. I would recommend dropping his "Strategic" rating to a more "average" value of 3...as a commander of division sized forces, there's nothing particularly exciting in his civil war career. (Failed invasion of Missouri in 1863, controversy with fellow officers)

2. Marmaduke did command a cavalry division during the Red River Campaign...so Cavalryman could be appropriate

Suggested stats:

This is crazy. Successfully saved his and other commands multiple times.... Allowed the successful evacuation of Little Rock by delaying the Federal advance...Successully prevented the link up two Federal armies in the West...the list goes on.

This is what happens when people rely solely on short wikipedia articles. This game deserves much better! :coeurs:
