I joined the club in 2007 having only the five, original, TalonSoft Battleground Civil War games. My first purchase with the campaign series was Gettysburg. After that I started acquiring the others in the series about one every three months or so, until I finally had everything. I also purchased al...

Well I suppose that I ought to exert an effort be calm and collected after reading these two latest statements, but I’ll ask for both the reader’s patience and forbearance as I stumble my way through my responses. The Cabinet has certainly done its first job by facilitating the presentation of the p...

The Cabinet seems to have very definitely proposed a change to the voting rule for CoA's: major generals are now proposed to be included along with generals and lieutenant generals! As you have already stated: "There are TWO issues of adding Major General to those ELIGIBLE to be COA AND to thos...

"Proposed rule: " In the election of a CoA, only members at the rank of MAJOR GENERAL, Lieutenant General or General, at the time the voting period begins, may vote for the CoA representing their respective military group." I'm questioning whether it would be better to allow ...

While I would agree that a CoA candidate should be someone who has at least experienced the successful command of a division, and thus establishing some measure of administrative credentials, I am not so inclined, nor have ever been, to believe that the vote ought to be restricted to the same rank a...

Well, that's just great! Another reb returnee spouting off about changing the war. :P I tell you that this thing will get out of control and we will have to pull troops from the field to reinforce our POW guards. You let one or two of these old retreads back into it and pretty soon you've got all o...

Maybe I'm not familiar with all of the game controls available, but is their a way to call up at your own convenience the last view of the battlefield after you've sent off your turn to your opponent without simply saving the screen shot? I don't normally screen save all of my turns, but on occasion...

I'm curious to hear anyone's appraisal of the recent film, Fury, starring Brad Pitt and Logan Lerman. Somebody went to a lot of trouble getting their hands on the real tanks used in this production.

This is what happens when you go to slurping all the empty beer mugs in the tavern.

You either forget what you were going to say, like me, or repeat yourself! :lol:

I had thought that we'd given these people enough of a drubbing their first time around to have forced their retirement permanently. :wink: But I see that they insist upon supporting their Cause no matter the sacrifice. Or maybe its the memory of Cam's liquor stocks that has them so worked up. :lol:

For many years after the war it was believed that the Confederates blew their chance for a complete rout of Sheridan's army at Cedar Creek when the famished, poorly equipped and unruly rebel soldiers stopped to rummage through the Union camps which had just been overrun. Jubal Early's official repor...

Always sad to see veteran officers retire from the colors, no matter their club allegiance. Yet the fact that they served for so long and provided the camaraderie, leadership and determination to make the club stronger and better will always be remembered. Good luck to you, Dale, in all of your futu...

Here's a decent study paper on Civil War muskets vs rifles for download as a pdf. (Sorry for the long winded link, but our forum won't accept straight pdf uploads.)
