Take Command: 2nd Manassas (TC2M) is a first person, realtime tactical strategy game. The setting is Virginia in the second
year of the American Civil War (1861-1865). The historical 2nd
Manassas Campaign began in mid-July 1862 and ended on
September 2nd 1862. It included the major battles of Cedar
Mountain, 2nd Manassas, and Chantilly/Ox Hill as well as a
number of minor actions. A short history of this campaign is found
later in this manual. This game puts the player into the historical
battles of that campaign as commanders of various units on both
sides and with the historical orders. There is also an open play
option with computer-generated battles.
The player Takes Command of an actual Civil War unit and directs
its combat actions on a 3D battlefield. The player can command
Union or Confederate units ranging in size from a small regiment
of about 100 men to a large army with over 60,000 men.
Regardless of the size of the command, the player is The
Commander and his physical presence on the battlefield is
represented in the game. Like his real-world counterpart, the
player can move around the battlefield to observe the nature of the
terrain, view the activities of enemy forces, and influence the
actions of his subordinate commanders and units.
TC2M was designed to be as realistic as possible. To play the
game is to get a chance to experience what it was like to
command troops during the Civil War—as it was “in the old days”.
More often then not, there will be other friendly forces present in
the fight with a superior commander orchestrating the whole battle.
Your command will be part of this whole so it is important for you
to follow orders.
Remember—YOU are the commander of a unit in TC2M. It is
YOUR command. YOU are responsible for everything it does or
fails to do. YOUR men will live or die based on YOUR decisions.
YOUR nation is depending on YOU to bring a victorious end to this
fratricidal conflict. If you are prepared to accept these
responsibilities, then strap on your spurs, buckle your sword, and
