Well, thats it, I've hope you've all enjoyed it, and thank you for sticking with it for 10 months. yes ten months, i started this bloody thing in febuary. there is no way i thought it would take me this long, hell, i'm moving in with my girlfriend of 8 months this weekend, and we we're even going out when i started this thing.
Then again, if somethings worth doing right, then its worth taking your time over, and at 73 tunrs, and about 65 newspaper, i've certanly done that, at about 1.30 hours each, were talking about 100 hours of work going into this AAR, not including all the times that the thing crashed on me and i had to restart the turn! (there were a lot of these, I don't like to talk about them)
As for the game itself, it was a good one i think, i nearly lost it a few times, espeically when the Union forces in the south outnumbered Sibly and McCulloch and were taking citys left and right, it was a war of two halves, the first two years was all in the West, with Lee doing little, I really thought at that point that this was going to be a war without a famous General Robert E. Lee. then the Western forces of the Union were destoryed, and the battle shifted to the East, and got bloody. but in the end, they were just bleeding men that they could have used to reopen the Western offensive.
Thats not to say i didn't make mistakes, I nearly Bled lees army to death in the first attack on washington, and the west was touch and go for a while, but in the end, my victory was won by surrounding and capturing enemy brigades in detailed battle.
now I'm going to move, and then I've got something stupidly complex planned involving 3D modeling and Dwarf Fortress, because I'm a glutton for punishment. after that, I may try a AAR for a PBEM game, or even try to do that Tutorial, but then again, if my next project takes as long as this one did, that could be in time for FOF2......
again, thanks for reading.

EDIT 2: Oh yeah, WHY DID NO ONE TELL ME I:VE BEEN SPELLING LINCOLN WRONG FOR A YEAR!? ah well, I'll blame that one on dislexyia
