Fort Sumter, 1861, the not-so-United States. Surrounding troops in recently seceded South Carolina devastate the struggling armies of the North, triggering a full-scale war. You must decide if you will command the Union troops of the North or the South's Confederate soldiers in all-out campaigns along the East Coast's vast terrains. You create the objectives and have the power to determine the fate of every battle, including the denouement, Gettysburg. Wage the entire crusade from beginning to end or select battles of your choosing. You make the war what you want it to be. Rewriting history is now at your fingertips.
Single-player options include Engagements (scenarios), Foray (deathmatches), State Campaigns, and the comprehensive Civil War mode. Players create their own objectives and choose from 70+ weapons and units to supply full-scale armies. Units range from infantry and cavalry to ironclads and mortars and operate on a true-to-scale terrain.
