I'm also looking for a AACW PBEM opponent - I was about to start my own thread as a matter of fact. I'm also on the east coast (West Virginia).
I can do several turns a week - one a day, maybe more on weekends. It depends on the whole work and family obligations. I should be able to get in at least one turn per day though unless I'm out of town or something.
I can play either side, but since I'm a northerner and you are a secesh it would make sense that I play the Union.
Drop me a line -
