This is a great game. I am excited that it is a non-collectible card game. Thanks GMT!

Very original mechanic game. A card game that works as a boardgame. It is not a card driven game (I see that it is placed in the CDG group).

Incredibly innovative game that oozes theme. Rather than use anonymous "strength points" to represent forces, this uses the actual formations and leaders (AP Hill's Light Division, Burnside's IX Corps). Perhaps not the game for those who love the art of maneuver, but simply perfect for those who want a lot of leader biography and representation of the tensions involved in crafting grand strategy in the Civil War.
