Wargame: Civil War
Struggle Between North and South
It is 1862. The Eastern theater of the American Civil War is
deadlocked. But a mobile campaign is being fought in the West. Union General
Ulysses S. Grant is fighting his way down the Mississippi River, capturing
Forts Henry and Donelson. Confederate General Johnston launches a surprise
attack against Grant's encampment at Pittsburgh Landing--otherwise known as
Shiloh Church. "Shiloh" means "peaceful."
In one of the hardest fought battles of the Civil War, the
Confederates roll up the leading Union regiments, only to be stopped cold when

The heart of Shiloh is the campaign system. At each stage of
a campaign, players choose from 2-4 operational decisions that will result in a
tactical battle to be played out on an expansive map, providing room for

operational options available to each side. Though every scenario may also be
played as a stand-alone, the bulk of the scenarios are integrated into the
operational/tactical campaigns, providing a high degree of replay value.
