Description

A turn-based strategy wargame set at the dawn of the US civil war, recreating the first major clash between the Confederate army and Grant's forces.

The game is played from an hexagonal grid and divided on turns of movement and attack phases, with pre-defined units divided in regiments of different sizes and abilities. You can choose whether to lead the Confederate or Union forces and the game allows for single or "hot-seat" 2P-multiplayer modes.
