by Civl War Player
No way, run fast, from this civil war card game
July 31, 2009

I bought this card game with great expectations especially since it was based on an original card game published during the Civil War in 1863. I first noticed that General Lee was given a 3 of Hearts status. Then, to my shock and dismay, I find that one of the best generals of the entire war did not even receive a card, and that of course was Gen. Nathan Bedford Forrest. Poor General Grant was only a 5 of diamonds even after having just won the battle of Vicksburg. Many obsure generals were included, obviously men who might have been well known in 1863, but who appropriately descended into the jaws of obsurity soon after the war ended, and are completely unknown now to even the most studied civil war scholar. On the upside, there are photos of several key celebrity Generals, including some politicians such as Jefferson Davis and Alexander Stevens, but no Abe Lincoln. Be warned, the photo quality on some cards is very poor. In short, save your money, instead buy a bag of cracker-jacks, and don't waste your time on this largely useless and disappointing card game. - CWP
