I've been reading Cold Harbor by Gordon Rhea, and I'm wondering if any War games have been published that cover ACW battles, showcasing the way cavalry was used to ride into position and then dismount , engage the enemy on foot, and then pursue if applicable. I just finished reading about the battle at Haws Shop and I think it would make in intriguing game. I know there are games out there that cover this area on their maps, but the scales of these games are wrong.
Thoughts?

Very difficult to find a copy, though.
