Maybe I'm missing this in the manual somewhere, but how exactly does the Union take coastal forts? I'm talking about Fort Fisher, Caswell, Macon, etc. Can you launch an attack straight from a ship at sea? Sorry but I'm still new to this game!
I have heard, in such a way as to believe it, of your recently saying that both the army and the government needed a dictator. Of course it was not for this, but in spite of it, that I have given you the command. Only those generals who gain success can be dictators. What I now ask of you is military success, and I will risk the dictatorship.
-Abraham Lincoln, 1863, in a letter to Major General Joseph Hooker.
