Just wondering if Curtis should be a NCT (from ever reliable Wickipedia):
In September, Curtis was given command of the District of Missouri, but Lincoln was soon forced to reassign him, after Curtis's abolitionist views led to conflict with the governor of Missouri

And Sickles should not be:
He was relieved after Gettysburg because he was wounded, not for Politics (that came later).

Interesting, but would Curtis had been removed if he were given command of the Army of the James? I doubt his abolitionist views would lead to conflict there.

Sickles has a leader counter? I don't remember him. I checked the photo of the counter sheet with the Union leaders and didn't see him there.

Sorry but what is "NCT" stand for. My brain can't remember and I'm sure I should know.

NCT = Non-Combat Termination

Its in the optional leader rules, not part of the original game.

Sickles is one of the optional variant leaders in the unofficial 3rd edition.

While it's true that Sickles was wounded at Gettysburg, there were plenty of officers who lost their legs and continued to serve. But Sickles' corps was dissolved after Gettysburg and Grant had no later need for his services, so he was effectively cashiered.
