Final Tally for ACW Game
I was picking up after my Civil war solo game. During the battle a casualty stand was put down each time a stand was lost. During the course of the conflict, the Union lost a total of 40 stands, the Confederacy 65! I was stunned at the difference. The main reason for the discrepancy was the ill fated rebel assault on the stone wall. Three brigades were literally shattered in their valiant yet vain efforts there. The other surprising statistic was the number of general officers that were lost. The Yankees lost three brigadiers and a divisional leader; the Rebs lost dour brigadiers.
