Additionally, William Frassanito believes these men were among the 2,500 hundred Confederate POWs transferred out of the Gettysburg area on July 16th, 1863. While considered the finest example of Confederate field uniforms, none of the men's clothing or gear appears to have any markers designating s...

The popular conception is that Civil War tactics were outdated, because generals repeatedly fell back on tactics that relied on direct mass infantry assaults. I don't think this belief is entirely incorrect, but it's overstated. Overwhelmingly, attack plans focused on flanking or diversionary action...

You can't form divisions right away either. In time you will get an event allowing them. Depending on what activation settings you use, you need an active general to form a division.

I didn't intend to turn this into a debate about Afghanistan. My point was the irony of the situation, and how costs and doubts (or self-reflection, or whatever one wishes to call it) about the worthiness of those costs continue with on us, as they always have and will.

Because its not a swamp, and as Orso noted- attacking should be EASIER, not harder.

To represent Fort Sumter correctly it would need to have some some characteristics which cannot be represented in the game at all at this time. What about switching the regional terrain to swamp?

I think a coastal fort terrain would be an interesting feature in the future, at least for those that were on islands or near islands (like Fort Fisher). These forts were all but impregnable to land assaults for near the entire war.
