Well I must have been doing something right, because I had all of his incoming supply routes captured. I had two large Union River Fleets cutting off the port. And third time is the charm....I managed to pound away two turns in a row and defeated them and captured a ton of prisoners and destroyed ev...

I was also wondering what they do. I figured that they were like "spies" and could show you the makeup of enemy units, but I never noticed when Pinkerton was out roaming the North Carolina countryside. As a one man / one woman force, they obviously cant capture anything, but do you just have them ro...

I updated my game to version 1.14 and now notice that I no longer have to keep any troops in areas that I control, except of course for cities where the citizens may "revolt" and reoccupy the town. I usually just put a unit in an area until I have 100 Military Control, even if the loyalty is just 5-...

Thanks Aslan, I'm pretty sure I did it that way. I also made sure all of the Corps and the Main Army stack had the "twin roads" button attached.

Control of Captured Areas

Howdy all, Been playing an 1861 Campaign Game as USA. I have captured most of Missouri, Kentuky, and parts of Tennessee, but still do not have Nashville, New Orleans, or Richmond (it is mid to late 1863). I did manage to capture the port city just east of Mobile, Alabama (sorry, I cannot remember th...

What are the advantages of prisoner exchanges? I have always wondered, but never done it. Do you automatically get a large amount of reinforcements added to your manpower pool that you can use to fill up your depleted units? Does the exchange just do a one for one exchange? If I have 50,000 USA pris...

So Gray,

If I wanted my CSA Army of the Potomoc to be renamed the Army of Northern Virginia, I just pull it back to say Richmond area, remove General Lee, and then reinstate him as Army commander? Does it then rename it Army of Northern Virginia?

Just curious.

I noticed in some old Threads that you can rename units by usning "control + left click". But I think they also said you cannot rename Armies. Why? I just noticed that my CSA Army of Northern Virginia is still named the CSA Army of the Potomoc in 1864. Wasn't there supposed to be a date that automat...
