The game would not load beyond the install screen. The Activision web page had only 3 somewhat related FAQ for online technical assistance, which were not helpful. Further, Activision has not replied to my email requests for technical assistance or even generated an automatic electronic reply.
If you can't get the game loaded and the company won't respond at all to inquiries, how does that bode for the quality, authenticity and entertainment value of the product if you ever succeed at installation.
With a little research I have discovered there are other Civil War computer games available that gamers recommend frequently. It doesn't appear that this is one of them.
So to try to fix some of the bugs in the game, I logged onto the Activision website to see if there was a patch/update for the game. There was so I tried to install it, it never would install correctly. Tech support was non-existent. After 3 lock ups and extremely, extremely slow game play, "The Civil War Game" will be up for sale on eBay soon. Shame on the History Channel for putting there name on this.
