Recommended Posts

So after over 2 years I return to play a Legendary Confederate Campaign and go from the Potomac Fort to Washington fighting 38 battles along the way for the win! In total the Union losses 1,024,642 killed and 24,763 captured to the Rebs 291,613 casualties. Hope you enjoy the series.

I won't be posting all my videos here (unless folks really want to see them). They will be coming out, hopefully at least one per day as the campaign is complete.

Of course, you can't start a legendary Confederate campaign without playing the infamous The Potomac Fort:

BTW, it appears it really isn't apparent in my campaign, but I am using my reputation to buy men, so the guns and training levels of my troops is especially poor at the beginning of the campaign as I am pretty much forced to buy weapons and use recruits. They will slowly start improving as time goes by. 

So does my generalship... which isn't the greatest at the start of the campaign.

The early war is quite difficult for me but following Shiloh our fortunes slowly begin to change with excellent victories at 1st Winchester, Cross Keys and Port Republic.

Then comes the battle of Gaines' Mill. 

With only 18 brigades in play, we surround the Yankee army and wipe them out with almost a 7 to 1 K/D ratio including 4 surrenders. My finest battle in the campaign so far.

CSA Shiloh is now streets better than vanilla, it's even worth playing day 2 for the nice surprise 👏

 

With 13,000 men I was lucky to hold on to Pittsburg Landing.

I am building an army to take me to Washington. Many times the outcomes of my battles are not spectacular. It is difficult to see up to this point where I am headed.

Perhaps this video will offer an explanation:

Hi Lava

Yes I've used the rush through the centre method in the past to win on day 1, but I prefer to challenge myself to go for historical objectives and strategies

I don't want to drop any spoilers, but if you do find yourself on day 2, 28.1 fixes a major annoyance with the vanilla game

Nice one Panda

This is a pure vanilla playthrough, so no involvement from me :)

For context, in the latest version of the J&P mod some of the resets of unit positions were disabled between days. Doing this required resolving additional technical issues and moves the battles away from the historical starting states on later days, so I can understand why the base game doesn't do this.

I surround and annihilate the Yanks on the first day at Gettysburg. I was unsure if I should continue the battle to its ultimate conclusion and wipe out the Yankees. I decided on a more conservative approach, fighting the Yanks on Little Round Top and then taking Cemetery Hill to conserve my army. K/D was 3.8 to 1.
