What CWOL Is

"Civil War OnLine" (CWOL) is a military, economic, and political simulation of the American Civil War with both wargaming and roleplaying aspects.

The military struggle of CWOL is based on historical facts. The game starts in 1861 and lasts until the end of 1863, the military fortunes of the Confederacy had doomed it to extinction by this point in the war.

CWOL uses the years of 1861, 1862 and 1863 for historical background of the majority of the game. This decision is driven by the analysis that after the triple Union victories at Gettysburg, Vicksburg, and Chattanooga, the Confederacy had little hope of achieving a military solution.

Players are challenged to try to alter the outcome, but the challenges each country faced in the 1860's are evident and will remain if the national team does not address the strategic, diplomatic, economic, and political obstacles in their path to victory.

CWOL uses twin software programs, "Shot and Shell" (SAS) and "General Quarters
