The game is supposed to max at 40 turns, correct?
There are 45 spaces on the turn record track around the board.
Yes, there is an optional rule that if both players agree in advance, you play to the end of 1865 rather than the July turn of 1865. That makes for 45 turns instead of 40. I'm not sure why you would want to make the game longer, though. I much prefer it when there is a sudden death victory, than a long grinding game to the bitter end.
