Uuuh the Only game that comes to mind is Call of Juarez: Bound in Blood but it isn't solely a civil war game, it just happens to be situated in the same era.

There's a good official civ 4 mod, it's about north vs south. Basically turns the game into panzer general colonial. North Vs South was great but it's a shit to work these days. Also human controlled canons were OP, you could kill the enemy army most times especially if there was a bridge.

Do the southerns have any good battle songs? It's hard to find to find rallying songs, bugle calls and similar that are actually from the war.

Their economic principles were shot to hell and they couldn't continue to operate the way they were. They were just petulant and wanted more say in matters of the union than they had any right to.

Every song from the time period has two versions, Union and Confederate. No idea which were actually made during the war vs postwar. There's also songs that are more focused on specific units (Irish and German brigades) so you can probably find some southern specific unit.

Hell there's even a Union version of dixie, which is straight up hilarious, but not as crazy as "good ol' rebel," which is a postwar song.

They're all old immigrant songs anyhow. I was hoping that at least someone had something new instead of re-writing folk songs about how the English are shit. The Americans seem to have a distinct lack of creativity.

Except I've never heard of "American Aggression," because that is fucking retarded since both sides are, in full, the "United States of America" and the "Confederate States of America." That would be like having a war between East and West Germany and calling it the "War of German Aggression." It literally tells you nothing, and it is doubtful that anyone who actually participated in the war would call it as such.

>We were kings of the fucking seas m8

Jokes aside, a navy's reach is only as good as it's ports, and the loss of colonies = loss of ports.

>some piddly
Colonies that were many magnitudes greater in size than the home country, providing loads of raw resources without having to trade with another country.
>backwards
There wasn't really that much of a technological gap, it was more of an industrial gap, which closed rather quickly after the war.
>bumfuck nowhere?
Maybe relative to the European stage, but the British would come back to further colonize the area (Canada) because of the raw resource potential.

Face it, if Britain retained control of the colonies it would be way better off today than it is now. "Letting the colonists win" is probably the dumbest thing you could have ever done.

I'm not sure we should count these, while technically correct, because their use wasn't as widespread as WWI. Gatlings were privately purchased by generals, and balloons weren't that prevalent.

Except it was over slavery? I never contested that. South Carolina rebelled and sought sovereignty due to the election of lincoln. lincoln had no designs to ban slavery in the southern states - however he refused future states to allow slavery if they joined the union. The southern states saw the future of the US being a majority non-slave institution and SC rebelled due to it. It was always about slaves - but more importantly the economic effects on a low-pop agrarian based industry without a slave work-force.

Granted America enjoys jumping into wars for no reason, but the case for delay in the first world war was pretty solid, since it was just a huge clusterfuck set off by two murders. America had no real interests at stake, and could make money by just selling supplies to the belligerent parties. It wasn't until Lusitania and the Mexican telegrams that America had sufficient Casus belli to actually do anything.
>>
>>323697996
Lincoln himself said that the war was over preservation of the Union.

South keeps slaves but stay in Union = no war
South frees slaves but stay in Union = no war

South free slaves but leave Union = war

The war was not over slavery.

>>323698230
The south would Never free their slaves though. Their entire economy and what little industry they had was built and powered by predominately slave labor. That is why so many southern states joined South Carolina when they acted out. And the option of "South Keeps Slaves but Stay in the Union" was right out when SC attacked Fort Sumpter. It was an act of a state attacking an unprovoked federal stronghold. That is an open act of war and not something lincoln could just back down from.

The civil war was about control, power, and economics.

If you think ANYONE gave a fuck about a bunch of niggers besides as a pretense to go to war you're an uneducated moron.

This is true but Lincoln was on the abolition bandwagon present at the time and was pushing for federal action to get rid of slavery. The south didn't want to give up their free labor, and staying in the union would've meant just that.

You dumb nigger, Lincoln provoked the attack on Fort Sumter on purpose, by keeping Northern forces occupying Southern soil despite polite requests from the South Carolina government asking them to vacate.

>>323698476
The north did just want to completely destroy the entirety of the south's economy, hell they still have a shit economy to this day compared to the north. I think the south's rebellion was justified, in that I would have done the same thing in their situation.

Lincoln was actually ready to let the south keep their slaves, untill actual bloody war broke out.

>>323698634
Half right. ANyone who claims that slaves were not the heart of the issue and the base cause of the war is deluded. However it was considered widespread fact amongst northerners and southerners that slaves were less intelligent and merely aped at being civilized people when not enslaved. However the view was also that they were men and, no matter how inferior deserved freedom. That said the war wasn't sparked over that. It was all economics and the south fearing a future non-slave majority in representation in the union - which would have spelled abolishment within 20-30 years. So at the end of the day it was all about slaves.

Except it wasn't. Slavery was the cause of secession, not the cause of war. Neither side cared enough about niggers to die over them.

>>323698717
>polite requests
jesus fucking christ do you into history at all? South Carolina already ceded from the union at this point. Sumpter was a federal installation and as such union property. The commanding general understood this and dutifully refused to vacate.iirc the commander was from kentucky and technically neutral. He simply did his fucking job an refused to back down without orders.

>>
>>323698848
And yet the war was sparked because of the slave issue and the south never would agree to letting go of their slaves.

They broke free from the union even though lincoln said off the bat he wouldn't ban their slaves. It was because of his policies on future states that made them leave. They saw that eventually there would be a vast majority of non-slave states in the union and that then it would just be a matter of time before a movement to abolish the institution would get passed. Slavery was still the crux of the war

Lincoln had the Union Soldiers stand their ground because Congress and the people supported the South leaving the Union. Lincoln and a small minority wanted them to stay and he knew if he ordered he troops to hold the fort then the Norh would rally behind him after the Confederates attacked it.

>>323700950
Well it was more over economics than anything really - primarily the southern economic backbone being mired and hand-in-hand with slave labor. It wasn't over the northerners hating the institution of slaver - but more so over the effects it had on the economic success the south had as an agrarian industry. Still all about them slaves tho. Also the northerners viewed slavery as being abolished "eventually". and they didn't want more blacks running around stinking up the place.

You've misrepresented the argument. It doesn't matter whether Lincoln was right or wrong to do what he did. My point is that he still knowingly and purposefully started the war.

Your claim that Sumter was "unprovoked" is bullshit, because it was Lincoln's intent to provoke the South.

>>323701095
Possibly, at this point we are getting into intent though. You could spout all day that he was provoking things - which is possible, sure. I could counter that he was afraid that giving in would generate the view of him as weak, especially early on as a first term president. And while congress might have been shifting it's feet on he matter, the northern populace as a whole were downright pissed over SC's actions, so he clearly had public support from the northern electorate in his actions.

But as far as intent goes that's up for debate I suppose. I still maintain his actions were the logical course though for anyone in his shoes regardless of intent

No. The people were for he most part on board with the South leaving the Union. They only got mad when SC attacked Sumter because Lincoln refused to remove the Union soldiers. Lincoln was part of the minority that wanted unity. Congress and the people wanted the South to go. Lincoln provoked SC to attack Sumter because he knew the people would get angry and want to fight for unity.

It's very good. It actually felt like the most deep Civil War simulations I've ever played; nothing else I can think of tries to get at the whole picture, instead of just economy/military stuff treated in a vacuum.

Even better if you start before House Divided's recommended start. That way, you see how your actions cause the war (and you might be able to prevent it altogether, but it's hard).

OP, this is what I'd recommend. I've played a lot of Civil War games, and Vicky 2 gets it best.

The north fought to keep the country unified.
The south was going to leave because new terrirtories were being admitted that were anti-slavery and they saw the writing on the wall, that they would soon be outnumbered in the legislature and slavery would soon be outlawed. Rather than allow that to happen, they seceded. Abe Lincoln wasn't having any of that secession bullshit and stomped them the fuck out.
>>
>>323703156
>>323703431
You have to look at the intents of both sides.

Why was the North fighting? Because they didn't want to lose land and resources, yes, but also because Lincoln knew that there will still many foreign stakes on North American territory and that neither country would survive if they were to remain divided. Therefore, Lincoln had the North fight to restore the union.

Why was the South fighting? I assure both of you, it was not because of slavery. Southerners had no intent of going to war when they seceded, so it's stupid to claim that they went to war to defend their right to own slaves. If they knew that the issue of slavery would lead to conflict either way, it would've been smarter to stage an open rebellion and overthrow the U.S. government. Southerners fought because saw the North as an invading force that was attacking their homeland, and they had no choice but to attempt to drive them out.

If it makes you feel better, you can claim that it was "over slavery" or "over economics" or "over states' rights" and say that it makes no difference either way, but you're over-simplifying the conflict.
>>
>>323703156
Slavery was a root issue, but the war was not fought to free slaves. Let's put it that way. The south was scared of being outnumbered in the government by free states and feared abolition as the economy was primarily based around slavery, the war was also fueled on both sides by "fire breathers" in the south preaching radical politics and likewise some from the north, see John Browns raid further stoking fears of slave revolts and abolition. South Carolina had threatened to succeed once before in 1838 nullification crisis over something else, the north and the south were very different in many ways, slavery being one of the main ones but not the only

There's a mod for Empire that adds in a Civil War campaign.

Fall of the Samurai is technically Civil War period, but the game is arcadey beyond anything and doesn't fit well with the theme that the warfare in that time period was so extremely brutal compared to war just a few decades prior.

The mod makes the battles extremely phyrric and bloody, which is how the battles should be. Most of the battles during the War were only won by a few thousand people, and when there's 20,000 men dead in one battle, that's unreal.

The civil war was fought to decide the issue of whether or not states are allowed to secede. They aren't.

The only reason the southern states seceded was to protect the slave economy.

The connection between slavery and the choice to secede is unbreakable.

Constitutionally, they are. There is no law that gives the federal government the right to quell secession by force. Abe Lincoln was a war criminal.

Because they depended on it. The sudden ending of that economy led to massive economic collapse and the loss of thousands of lives, both free and enslaved. The right thing to do would have been a gradual shift from the slave economy to a more ethical one, but the Union attempted to force it because the industrialized north would not have been as harmed by it. It was clearly economic manipulation.
