I did some edits on my 1st issue and I am starting this new thread on this ARR thread. This will be somewhat of a different AAR; one that does not resemble FOF much. Instead, it will be a newpaper from Richmond, Va. beginning in April 1861. I am playing the Confederates, beginning with the November scenario. So, from April through October the reports will not be taken from FOF results, but will be taken from actual newspaper articles from that day, plus other sources. I am citing sources whenever possible. Beginning in June you will read some ahistorical stuff that will flow from strategies that I will be using once I begin to play FOF. Beginning in November I will add some stats similar to what Grey Hunter did with "News From the Front", but it will be on an additional attachment. So this will have sort of a "Guns of the South" flavor meaning that it will start out historical and move to the ahistorical. The ahistorical parts obviously come from the results from my FOF game. Often you will see newspaper columns from Richmond, Va. Richmond, you might say, was the center of the world for about 4 years. There was excitement, patriotism, fear, dread, disease, death, and all in large measure. At least in the Eastern theater, it was the center of the war. I hope you enjoy it.
