The information listed below is a result of letters and comments from the players of TSS. It consists of a number of changes, clarifications, additions, etc., to the rules of the game, some corrections to the few typographical errors that appeared pertaining to the Order of Battle, as well as two additional suggested, but optional, rules that will increase historical enjoyment of the game at some cost to playability. The designer is grateful to the number of people who have responded with their insights and comments, and he certainly welcomes further such letters.

Counter Sheet (CORRECTIONS)

  1. There is an extra Confederate Unit in the counter-mix: the 35th Va. Battalion Cavalry. It is not used in the game.

  3. The Union 108th NY Regiment should read 2/3/11, not 1/3/11. It is listed correctly in the OB.
