From Sumter to Appomattox
It's 1861 and the nation is divided against itself. Brother
against brother, father against son. You stand at the brink of one of the
greatest conflicts, the American Civil War. In the next four years over 600,000
will die in America's bloodiest war. One in every three men wearing a uniform
will be a casualty. The nation's greatest trial has begun.
Confederate or Union, history buff or strategic gaming fan,
with its great attention to detail and dead-on realism, American Civil War is
the choice for anyone ready to face the challenge of refighting, and
rethinking, the most devastating war in American history.

military victory options, so you can face entirely different strategic,

orders to alter the outcome. Test your strategies against some of the legendary
leaders of this epic struggle - you are the commander - all the key decisions
