Description from the packaging.

The American Civil War.

The year is 1861 and you are Abraham Lincoln... or Jefferson Davis.

The immensity of this war dawns on you- the bloody battles and the conflicts over such issues as slavery, taxes, inflation and enlistment of negroes. No Greater Glory covers these and other major military, political, diplomatic and economic aspects of the Civil War.

From the leading politicians and generals of the time, assign your cabinet members, foreign envoy and military leaders. Move your armies across the map and order your generals to take them into battle.

Enter your decisions quickly and easily with the "point-and-click" mouse interface. Superb graphics present you with immediate feedback of your actions.

Every game can end differently. For example, as Lincoln, you could lose the election of 1864- and the game! As Davis, your foreign envoy may win the war with words- by convincing Europe to recognize the Confederacy.

No Greater Glory. The most complete re-enactment of the war that divided a nation!
