I think historically in most major battles the cavalry cancelled each other out. I'm thinking of Stuart's attempt to outflank the Union left at Gettysburg being stymied by Custer. The main problem I see in the game is that the very limited communications during these battles is hardly reflected at a...

Would someone please give me two examples of successful cavalry charges in the civil war that crushed infantry units in the line and routed an entire flank. This happens all the time in these games and is totally unrealistic and has no historical reference. Oh and I am not talking about the occasio...

Hi, Joe,

I thought they taught mathematics at West Point. :)

Hi, Colonel,

I haven't played campaigns in a very long time, but I seem to remember Peninsula was pretty even.

Hi, As near as I can tell, it doesn't run toward something so much as away from something; whatever caused it to rout. For example, if it is fired on from the rear, it will rout forward. I'm not sure that is the whole story because I have seen strange things happen with routs, but I think it is a ma...

Hi, Mark,

If you do get back to Pea Ridge, I recommend you check out Prairie Grove. It is only an hour away.

Howdy Gents!, Looking over many Campaign games I've identified several missing battles. Some are small and insignifigent but others are major engagments that were simply skipped from the current releases. If you could add or request some of these battles, which would you add or know that are missin...

Hi, General, Here is an interesting web page on all the rigamarole that goes into firing an artillery round: https://www.civilwaracademy.com/civil-war-artillery Checking Jack Coggins' Arms and Equipment of the Civil War, the diagram shows the limber 20+ yards to the rear of the gun muzzle, according...

Hi, Colonel, I don't have Chickamauga loaded right now, but in the absence of a better informed response: Wheeler's assignment during the battle was to cover Longstreet's left, including the mountain passes and fords, many of which are off-map. It is possible many never made it onto the map within t...

Wonder what is counting as obscuring terrain, currently I see units in a field and also have XXX instead of, for example, 3XX.


Town hexes as well.

Y'all used to have a private Yankee forum with advice on tactics and strategy. Don't know if it's still around or what it has to say about cavalry, but some of the older hands might know.

Gentlemen, As I replied directly to General Kunz, I am in. A point about including Longstreet's corps. If this alternative history had unfolded, I can't imagine Lee acquiescing to losing both his corps COs. If Jackson goes west, then Longstreet stays east. You will need to find some dregs from else...

Hi, Here's what it says under changes: Added the Extreme Fog of War optional rule. When Extreme Fog of War is in effect, the Visibility highlight only displays from friendly occupied hexes. Also, for enemy units in obscuring terrain (e.g., Forest), enemy force counts will only display as XXX instead...
