Meh, I don't see why. The American Civil War was one of the most pivitol events in world history. The only mod I have seen that focuses on it is North American Theater, which is buggy, unbalanced, has hot air balloon warfare, and doesn't have great unit art.

I know that theres almost a tranfer of warfare from the American Civil War to WWI. Men in trenches, rifled cannons, machine guns, and the transfer of Muskets to fast loading weapons

Actually, all those things were first used in the Civil War. Trench warfare was used by Robert E. Lee during the battle of Cold Harbor. Rifled cannons were also first used in large numbers in the Civil War. The gatling gun served as the first real machine gun, and multi shot rifles were also taking roots with the Henry rifle and the Colt revolving rifle.

That was mainly a French thing, who kept brightly colored uniforms throughout the war. The Germans used some elements of 1800's uniforms. like the picklehaube leather helmet (my avatar), and some officers wore a cuirass until 1915 when it was ruled to be extra weight which provided almost no protection.

yup, the French liked the red and blue colors but it was changed to a blueish, while the Germans changed the blue to field grey, I I still like the early battles where they sounded the bugle and charged at each other in all theyr doomed glory Mr. Green

Cavalry charges were the best. Hundreds of men on horses charging at a machine gun, and just getting chewed up. (this really got off topic)

Deliberately stupid American stereotype:
American Civil War? Was there any other Civil War? I think not!

Actually, the Americans do get several Civil War elements in various different ways. Not all the ideas are final, so I won't say anything specifically, but there will be some elements, yes.

well excuse my education! the only reason I even know of the Mexican civil war is because I lived there for half of my life. remember...if your country has not given me any sort of cupkaky goodness...then you are dead to me! lol

Actually, my history teacher yelled at me for calling it just the Civil War. She gave the class a huge lecture on the fact that there was a Russian civil war, a English civil war, a Mexican civil war, and numerous Chinese civil wars...
