I'll give y'all a hint: All the Rebs are standing on one side of the fence, and all the Yanks are standing on the OTHER side of the fence. :D

This was a photo of five ACWGC members, taken in 2004 at the Antietam National Battlefield. This photo only includes first names. I'll buy a round of drinks in honor of the first person who correctly identifies all five. :D

Gentlemen,

Thank you all for the responses. We have the players needed for my 'training session'. Once this completes (assuming I 'graduate! lol), another post will be made for a full-blown Tessier-style battle.

Your humble servant,
Gen 'Dee Dubya' Mallory

I'm old and the brain/memory was questionable even when I was younger, but that's the first I've heard of an Observer Corps. But anyway, I'm one of those that have doubts about this idea also. Even, or especially, if it was popular; who trains them if they are new, who adds them to the list/DOR and...

I think what General Simms is saying is that it really doesn't matter if two players are from the same 'side' or not - so long as they are playing a game, why not give them full points for the game?

For something to think about while most of us sit in isolation, there is no check in the system to make sure that maneuvers are not registered as battles. Since no one seems to really care, why don't we do away with maneuvers? There is no need in some abiding by club rules and getting half points w...

Gentlemen, I’m going to float an idea by you all. If it receives the response I expect, I will put in the work to make a formal presentation to the Cabinet, but it will require quite a bit of work that I don’t want to do unless it seems to be a popular idea. This club was designed for role-playing o...

Gentlemen,

FYI: I neglected to mention that we will be using a modified scenario from the Gettysburg game for this session. In order to watch the replay, all players will need to have the latest version (3.0) of John Tiller's "Campaign: Gettysburg".

I appreciate the responses we have received thus far. However, gentlemen, I would remind you that any questions should be sent to General Miller and me, directly, rather than in this post. This is to retain anonymity, in case any of the respondents decides he would like to participate. General Mille...

If we had a Hall of Fame, Gary Cope would be in it. Get well, Gary. If we had a Hall of Fame, it would be named "The Garry Cope Hall of Fame". He was the Commandant at VMI when I was a wet-behind-the-ears cadet. Who could ever forget his "Texas Tea" (none for the cadets until af...

Gentlemen: Some of you have heard of the Tessier style of game. For those of you who have not, you’re about to be given an opportunity that will change the way you look at these games. Imagine yourself a mid-level commander in a Civil War battle. You receive your orders from higher up and have to in...

General Sands - I find your reply especially fitting, given your signature line ("If you do not know where you are going, any road will take you there.") :lol:
