1864 saw the Union army make substantial gains against the Confederate forces in the American Civil War. Grant, replacing Halleck, took the risky gamble of attacking the Confederates on three different fronts. While Grant failed to gain any significant tactical advantage in any battle against Robert E. Lee, he succeeded at depleting Lee's forces. On the Western front, Sherman was able to capture Atlanta and seize Savannah. The Union's control of the railways and waterways gave them an immense logistical advantage, which would become vital to the North's eventual success. The Confederacy was ultimately fighting and losing a defensive war.

This game is amazing and helps to create in an interest in more detailed aspects of the Civil War.

These Hex War Civil War games are the best available. If you loved the old Civil War Generals series then you will enjoy these Civil War games as well. They are very playable and realistic to history. I hope there are more battles, etc. coming in the future. I have all of the Civil War series and they are great. They have different levels of difficulty to continue to challenge yourself.
I would like to see campaigns for Grant vs. Lee, Sherman’s Atlanat/march, Shenandoah, Nathan B. Forrest, Hood’s Tennessee invasion, etc. I hope Hex War adds more campaigns/battles soon.

Good fun.

I am a map game fan. This is a fun one. It’s not as detailed as the classic CIVAL WAR GENERALS 2, but it is still a blast too play. If u love map games, u’ll likely love this!
