You can entrench inside a structure too (city or fortifications), but this is a different place than outside, so you have to restart from scratch. Inside a structure, it means you are making preparations more than digging the earth as you guess. Fortifications created during the war were rare, so h...

I've read several in books that the south actually had pretty good general supply and ammo, but that there was no logistics system to get it to the troops. [Lee's Appomatix campaign was trying to get to the supplies that a rickety RR couldn't deliver]. There is a wll-known anecdote about Union sold...

How does terrain affect combat strength? Also, the terrain in east Tennesee, southern Kentucky is a nightmare to move an army through. Seems to take forever. As Union player I have opted for a plan that avoids campaigning through these regions. I put up what amounts to a cavalry screen to prevent C...

I think that is the secret - he's using river transport once he's taken the forts so he drop cav units deep in the heart of Dixie, then combined with the earlier notes about small supply sources he's giving you fits. Not a bad strategy overall, now just use it on him. Just be glad there was no Tenn...

Thanks for the pictures. The Tennessee always seems bigger on a map, no matter how many times I see it for some reason. It is slightly wider and a bit deeper than it was at the time of the battle.
