This from a guy who replays centuries old battles with little men, following the same paths to victory or not as the generals who fought them to begin with.  Why not just read a history book to see how that worked out?

I was able to completely screw up the Battle of Chickamauga last weekend and produce a wildly ahistorical result with my little men.

What was the result?  A cannon that fired five times historically actually fired four?

Yes, but you could be missing important news. Sabbathia might have a sniffle or something.
