Shiloh is a great visit as I was there about a 6 weeks ago. Just be sure to bring a book with some maps as the field is just as confusing today as it must have been back then. Also after talking to one of the Rangers realize the woods were much thinner back then compared to today and that will help ...

I dislike the artillery capture rule for the simple reason you have to garrison them to get the victory pints of the n battle moves on. I really dislike the quality modifiers as I feel the CSA gets enough of advantage from their quality ratings as it is.
