As I was reading since my last entry, I come to realize that the guerrillas in many ways acted similar to Native America warriors in battles with the Union troops. I might have to pull out my old copy of Yellow Ribbon by Greg Novak. This is one of the best rules sets for the realistic portrayal of the Pony Wars, but very frustrating for the Native Indian players for the lack of control over their commands, much like the real world. I think with a little modification, this rules could be adapted to cover the various Union battalion sweeps in Missouri better than any existing rules out there. But GDW's Space 1889: Soldier's Companion might be as good as it has fieldcraft ratings too.
Be seeing you
