UseNet War-Historical Newsgroup - Wargame of the Year 2007 GOLD Award - 7.0/10
If you are a huge fan of the Civil War and table-top games with a lot of patience, the AGEOD title might just have what you’re looking for.

Out of Eight - 7/8
"AGEOD’s American Civil War is a very good strategy game and another feather in the cap for its developers, James Allen"
Link to review:

The Wargamer
"(...) 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 (...)" , Bill Trotter

Gamerhall (German) - 8.7/10 - Silver Award
summary (translated):
- Good AI
- Easy to learn interface and game but with high complexity
- Sound and graphics are very nice done and add to the atmosphere of the game
- Addicting for friends of strategy games and highly recommended, especially for those with an interest in the ACW.
