In AGEOD's American Civil War - The Blue and the Gray, players are military and political leaders trying to lead the troops of their nations (armies and fleets) to victory, in the midst of some of the toughest operations during those five years of wild campaigning throughout a divided nation.

Most of the individual years of campaign between 1861 and 1865 are playable via a separate scenario. Advanced scenarios will allow recreation of some yearly and/or theatre campaigns, and there will be of course the complete Grand Campaign covering the whole war.

Reviews - From the Press

GamersInfo.net Review
Altogether, American Civil War — Blue and the Grey is a very solid game that was great to play, from the scenario to grand campaign.

Gamezone.com Review
7.10 - ...if you fit into that group of hardcore strategy fans and Civil War enthusiasts, then this could be [a game] that you’ll want to check out.

Ars Geek Review
8.5/10 - Just plain fun.

The Wargamer Review
(...) a serious contender, in my opinion, for Strategy Game of the Year. And it may also be the best Grand Strategic simulation of the Civil War ever devised. It combines a blessedly intuitive – yet actually rather complex – interface, marvelous depth-of-play, a compelling sense of epic drama, and a handsome, distinctive look that is also cunningly designed to add to the “period” atmosphere
