Chris, you are correct. I open the screenshot in old paint to add text (I've just got whatever apps came with the computer). I like the simplicity but I find that I didn't include the Hagerstown Road label on the map. Mark agreed not to read the AAR until the game is over. We agreed to all optional ...

Greetings. I posted that I was In Search Of a Gettysburg opponent for a game and Mark Truitt CSA accepted the, um, challenge. We are playing Historical 1 with fog of war, manual defensive fire off, and rout limiting off. We'll try to do about one turn per day, and I'll try to post an AAR. Don't expe...

I'm looking to play JTS Campaign Gettysburg v 2.01 against: preferably a CSA Junior Officer (or any JO), a CSA Field Grade Officer (or any field grade officer, including you Chris), or anybody any rank who wants to play a long game. I'd like to play the historical 3-day Gettysburg as the Union (or a...

Hey Chris - just want to post a note saying thanks for the AAR and I'm that I'm lurking, er reading. Thanks for explaining your thoughts as we go along - that's helpful to a noob like me. I don't understand Daniel's move to reinforce the Beaver Dam area unless he has as many troops as Grant had sold...

Thanks for the clarification about brigade colors. I've had some of these games since the 90s and I still haven't pushed all the buttons...

This will be a long game. I think I read on the forums that the 'record' is about 150 turns or so. I'm be reading intently.

Chris,

Do you use a mod to get your unit counters to display as different colors? If so, which one. I usually don't install mods but I might if it's stable.

Good game; it is odd (but strangely satisfying) to see CSA troops rout.

Well, Chris and I decided to put me out of my misery. I offered a termination bid, so I'll get to see the next steps. The game went ahead and credited him with the artillery, so the score went well into CSA 'Major Victory'. If anyone has comments or critiques I welcome them. I've asked Chris to look...

It's turn 15 of 18 and even though the Victory points say I'm not losing, they don't tell the whole story. Here is the Victory dialog: https://i.imgur.com/BNTo2xk.jpg The image is from the start of the turn and I actually gained points during my turn, however, the victory points don't include the un...

Christian - thanks for the explanation. Ack, that means the entire game I've been handicapping my guys by having infantry with my corps artillery. I don't think it would have mattered, but still... I guess even though this isn't a 'training game', thanks to my opponent I'm getting schooled. I just h...

Daniel - I like the added touch of noting that the Iron Brigade played "The Campbell's are Coming" (just as at Gettysburg in real life). I'm playing 'Wayne' for my first PBEM and he is a tough opponent.

Nice to see you writing an AAR and pleased that you figured out the image posting. Good (or bad I guess) to see that your whupping me isn't a one-off but is your usual style. Well done.

I was out of pocket for a few days - went to Murfreesboro Tennessee and visited the Stones River Battlefield. Since the battle was fought in late December / early January the park usually has a nice program this time of year (re-enactors; artillery, cavalry, and infantry demonstrations; an encampmen...

Thank you for the encouragement Mark. I think I need it after the last turn. The confederate troops marched over my troops as if they were on parade. I'd like to compliment my opponent Chris for his troop handling. My 'lines' melted; 600-man regiments ran; the ones that ran the previous turn ran aga...

I'll post another map at 15 or 16 of 18, then the final map. I think I have one more monkey roll left in the time remaining. Paul will rejoin the 2nd Division (~two turns), Rowley will form the right at the crossroads (Martinsburg Pike and Hopewell Road,~one turn), Meredith's Iron Brigade will form ...

Also note that I don't know if those would have been the correct contemporary names. Some of my guys rou...
