    A strategic level game covering the entire war from April 1861 through March 1865. Victory generally depends on the control of replacement centers located at the north and south ends of the mapboard.

    While Civil War was grouped with AH's "Family/Social" game line, it shared elements with their "Tournament" wargames of the time. The game was played on a hex map and a CRT was used to resolve combat. The primary distinction between Civil War and the Tournament series wargames is the use of pawns instead of counters. It appears that this was done in an effort to introduce casual gamers to the Tournament style games.

    Civil War was dropped from the AH lineup in 1963.
