No, you are not missing anything except...

that I'm interested of why does the loyalty levels change by themselves (without any federal action in the area).

Your other points are valid though. This is not a biggie after all...

Indian Territory loyalties

:indien: Ugh! I have some problems with the Indian territory loyalties while playing with the Rebs. It seems that there is a small loyalty swing during sometime in mid ´62 even (in favour of Union) if there are no federal units nearby. I usually send a Brigade of Texans with Sibley (+ a few Rangers)...

Is Foreign Intervention implemented at all?

In my latest test campaign (1.06) with the Federals I was hit by 2 really bad events: 1. Kentucky seceded and 2. Trent situation escalated. After reading all the messages I looked through the objective page and the foreign intervention rate wasn't changed even after the escalation messages said some...

I posted a thread about the TN State militia (or the lack of it really) as you can buy volunteers only.

In the April 61 GC both sides field their state militias through an event (TN gets 3 units, IIRC) but still...there are huge gaps to plug for the CSA player.

Thanks for the tips, guys. I've played far into 64 and I haven't seen any buildable cavalry brigades at all. I noticed that the federals get another cav bde (sabre bde + leader).

Organising your cavalry

As I'm not very good at the American Civil War history(but not a complete ignoramus either) I'm thinking that my cavalry tactics have been sub-optimal at least. I've seen that CSA gets 3 cavalry units of brigade size: the Laurel Bde, Morgan's Alabama Bde and J.E.B. Stuart's 1st Virginia (arrives wit...

I think the main issue here is that you can't field hardly any Militia in TN. And given the fact it's one of the states that are in the frontline - it's a major issue when those Union cavalry raiders are getting trough. Yes, that was exactly my point. The federals can overthrow Kentucky and Tenness...

So what you guys are saying is that the A.S. Johnston's Army of Mississippi included the Tennessee State Militia?

Tennessee State Militia?

Where is it?

The event where both sides field their state militias, Tennessee has none. This gives an advantage to the Federals as Tennessee has also a very low cap for volunteers also.

During the early April 1861 Campaign the Union gets lots of Brigade sized units through events. This is fine but... Most of these brigades have a twin brother...I've taken a closer look and these units have the same Brigade names, same commanders and same sub components. And to make matters worse......
