This game has received mixed reviews. It is recommended that a number of house rules are added to improve play, in particular the inclusion of simultaneous combat after the first round. Following our introductory play through it is evident that positioning and terrain are vital. The time factor also adds the impetuous for Johnny Red to drive hard against the union positions as the clock is ticking and Northern reinforcements are on the way.
In researching a little about the battle, I came across the excellent "The Civil War" podcast. The podcast creators, Colorado couple Rich and Tracy are undertaking the epic task of detailing chronologically the conflict, covering most of its key events and individuals. Well worth a listen.
