    To get the ball rolling, Civil War BOARDGAME which I still love after all these years is Terrible Swift Sword by SPI. Way out of print, but still the best. I will look for computer games, but I never really played many. There was one once. I will look for it.

    Found the Computer game that I thought was interesting. It is Sid Meier’s Gettysburg and Sid Meier’s Antietam. Can get it for about $30 or so bundled together. It is a bit old 1990’s I think.
