Any thoughts on Empire and/or Napolean Total War? Dealing with Stephen Sears' Gettysburg has put me in a gaming mood. It really helps to actually see a flanking move--even if its mounted knights in Medieval Total War.
As an aside, I really think an iPad app/e-book with computer animation would really help a lot of these Civil War books. I don't need a movie, but I'd like to get some sense of what, exactly, Longstreet saw when he looked across the field before Pickett's Charge. Having gone there and seen it, I get the idea. But for people who can't go, it'd bee cool to see.
