Are there any games that cover the whole war?

Thanks in advance.

At a light and fairly abstract level, there's Skirmish. It's not a hard-core wargame but for what it is and what it's intended to convey, it does a very good job.

Still waiting for the strategic ARW game that is the worthy successor to 1776. None of the games mentioned thus far fits the bill for me. Perhaps Simonitch and GMT will cast their gaze in this direction after publishing "The US Civil War".

There is something viscerally satisfying about the Tory Militia rising up during a reinforcement phase to whittle down the Continental Army regulars still nearby (as can happen in 1776).
