I'm just learning the game and I'm very grateful that Durk and Longshanks are willing to accommodate me with sharing my experience.
So, I'm playing Durk and Longshanks is the host. Longshanks is helping me with advice. Durk is cool with this. And, my goal is to learn to play the game. Altaris beat me so bad in the first round, I still have nightmares.
So, here is the first of several screencasts that highlight my experience, as a newbie to the game and this type of gaming.
Things I learned:
-Happy about Harper's Ferry - CSA backed away
-moved some troops to Fort Monroe (? - Tidewater VA)
-Gen Nate is attacking Jefferson City
-Spreading out armies from Fairfax
-Sending Generals around KY
And, I had the game crash. Where do I post my log files?
- Quick screencast to show how I download the PBEM file and start the game. Anyone got a fancy way to do this? Seems like too many clicks to get the game started up and underway.
Hoping to learn how to:
-bombard with ships
-disembark troops (distance unload order)
-not get routed in MO
-do a naval invasion of the CSA somewhere

Leaving Alexandria, but my garrison force is locked? How to do? And, what is G/G evade?
Leaving Ft. Monroe, doesn't seem worth defending when I can use the troops to naval invade anyway on the coast.
I got torn a new one in MO - I had the superior numbers and power, but I suspect I had conflicting orders or something - Anyway, two generals (Price and ???) are about to consolidate. Durk. DURK!!!
Anyway, understanding why you all love this game so much. Thanks for the support and advice.
