A HOUSE DIVIDED
The game simulates the epic struggle of the American Civil War that was fought over the twin issues of slavery and states' rights. The period from 1840 to 1861 saw the issues brought to a boil, and in 1861 the nation became entangled in a terrible war that lasted for long years. This game covers the war between the North and the South from the first battle of Bull Run (or Manassas Junction) to Lee's surrender at Appomattox (or Grant's surrender at Harrisburg...). Each player becomes a leader of one of these two nations and makes the strategic decisions which determine the ultimate outcome of the war. This is the third edition of this award-winning classic strategy game with a beautiful mounted mapboard and gorgeous playing pieces by Franz Vohwinkel...
