This thread will demonstrate how *not* to play Forge of Freedom! I plunged into the Advanced Game after reading the epic Gil/jchastain AAR and skimming the manual.

Anyway, I have the Union, the AI has the CSA, and I’m playing the Advanced Game with most of the defaults enabled, including CSA Emancipation. I started by following jchastain’s advice on Kentucky: move troops out to improve one’s chance of Kentucky joining your side.
