From US Grant by Joan Waugh (Pg. 176). “Robert U. Johnson [from Grant’s era] observed that every battle has a least four points of view: that of the man who gets credit for the victory, that of the man who thought he should get the credit, that of the man who is blamed for the defeat, and that of th...

Scott!

But for the abundance of hair and the absence of thick glasses and significant girth this is a dead ringer for what he looked like when he was 40!

Capt. Campbell <salute> There are better mentors than me out there by far but I would be happy to provide this service to you. There are several excellent small scenario's in Chickamauga that I would recommend if you should choose to get this game while the JTS sale is on (!). Otherwise I can sugges...

The short answer is: Buy them all :wink: Each and every one. Do not delay.

Cadet Steele <salute>

Welcome to the ACWGC!

British CSA players have been among the most enjoyable to whip ( :D ) and I wish you a speedy transit through VMI. Officers of the 5th Corps look forward to meeting you on the battlefield.

Lt. Lanuza <salute>

Congratulations and welcome to the Club!

I must warn you that I became acquainted with Lt. Greenley many years ago. He was a young fox then, he's a very wily old fox now.

We are quite pleased to have him on our side of the fence.

Good luck sir!

Col. Nelson <salute> Your point is well taken, made even more so by the fact the hex size is 125 yards not 145. I have often used this limitation as an agreed to house rule as I know you have. It would surely be a good optional rule when, if ever, JTS invests the time into updating the rules for the...

Welcome Cadet Terhune!

We at 5th Corps look forward to helping you shed the bad habits and false expectations that may have been instilled by great victories against the AI.

Best regards,

Took me a while to figure out where to find the additional MP cost of moving adjacent to a unit that has deployed skirmishers.
This is found in the PDT table for the scenario.

Gentlemen <salute> Lt. Ross and I first met when a group of us got a Wargaming Club going in Corvallis, Oregon where I was attending Oregon State University. Scott is quite correct, Ross got me through my toughest course while studying Forestry there, Calculus. Why it was felt this kind of knowledge...

Lt. Campbell <salute> When was the picture taken? The last time I visited Gettysburg was before the NPS begin to restore the landscape there to its 1863 appearance. Where I was last standing near this location (1986) all I could see was second growth forest--no hint of the importance of the position...

Another fun and fast one. 18 Turns. Slightly pro-CSA. USA initial forces, 6976 infantry, 10 guns. Reinforcements 1103 infantry, 6 guns. CSA initial forces, 6334 infantry, 4 guns. Reinforcements 3597, 0 guns. USA starts with barely a Minor Victory in good defensive terrain. Several remnant units and ...

Short Scenario, 10 turns. USA forces: 7388 Infantry, 13 guns. CSA forces: 7967 Infantry, 4 guns. No reinforcements for either side. USA begins with Minor Victory. Scenario slightly favors USA due to VP lead, good defensive ground and fields of fire. Screenshot shows starting positions. Johnson's Res...
