It couldn't have been that tough. The first traffic light was invented in 1868 in London, England. It was installed outside the Houses of Parliament to control the flow of horse-drawn traffic over Westminster Bridge. The traffic light was manually operated by a police constable and combined three se...

WDS solved the problem of more than two supply wagons in column movement not being able to follow a road at a sharp turn, but in its place (a much lesser evil), every unit follows a supply wagon when using the Alt key. Accordingly, be careful what you run a supply wagon by when using the Alt key. Ev...

All options on except for MDF, EFOW, and Arty Capture. No house rules. Looking for someone who can do 3-4 turns per week. I will play either side and only requirement is that the opponent be a member of ACWGC (no difference to me if Union or Confederate). I prefer the larger battles. At the moment I...

A Union overreach resulting in the battle of Olustee followed by a broken down train carrying over 1,000 Union wounded that was saved by a Union regiment in miraculous style.

Good presentation. Comment 1 - I guess that we no longer have to worry about artillery being in a defensive battle line through a town or woods. I understand the woods but not the town as there are open streets where artillery fire could be directed. Artillery in woods, I've always said that artille...

My guess would be that you counted scenario 144 while I included 144, 145, 146, and 147.

For the Battle of Shiloh, what I count in the DoR is 42 Union victories, 43 Reb victories, and 25 draws. It looks to be about as even as you can get, but factually if the Rebs press, the Union runs. You have to keep in mind though that the HPS/WDS series has so many options available that can radica...

What does it mean when a leader's command rating has two entries - one in parentheses (e.g. D (E))?

What is a command rank letter?

I play with all sound turned off. I'm an old man and if the sound of cannon or gunfire didn't scare me to death then my wife would finish the job.

"Whether the guns are in sections or batteries is irrelevant." Our difference could be the options that we play with. Maybe you don't play with automated defensive fire. I do and I'll charge or cross the field of fire of 6 one gun batteries/sections any time but I am less likely to do so i...

I can't contribute to the main question because I don't know historically how they were utilized. But to the purpose behind the historical question, I am just the opposite as I consider artillery broken into sections as a disadvantage. For one, sections do not normally produce as good defensive fire...

Congratulations, Gen Treuting. Is this the first time in the history of the club that someone has skipped the ranks of Major General and Lieutenant General? I can't remember any others but then again I can't remember what I ate an hour ago.

For those Rebs that are not familiar with the Confederate Full Dress Uniform, it is the normal field uniform with the addition of a patch to hide the rip in the seat of your britches.
