Ok, my first AAR taught me a thing or two. Mainly, I learned not to get ahead of myself. The game with Mark was so much fun that after posting the first turn we went ahead and played until turn six, at which point it was clear that independence was a lost cause and I conceded the game. Unfortunately my notes weren’t sufficient to recreate those turns for the AAR, so turn one was all I had to go with.
Now I’m going to try to do it right. Mark is unfortunately not available so I have a new opponent to control the oppressive forces of Lincolns Federal Government. Hopefully my freedom loving… errrr … I mean INDEPENDENCE loving Southern nation will prevail.
