153 years ago today...
On July 4th 1863, General Grant formally accepted Pemberton's surrender at Vicksburg. It was a defining moment of the war, although a more complex event than celebratory newspaper headlines of the time suggested (Grant paroled all 30,000 rebel defenders under the errant assumption most would never fight again). If you haven't yet downloaded our free Vicksburg campaign, today would be a fitting day to do so!

After the break, we'll reveal the results in detail!
What does it all mean?
Does this poll mean the next campaign released for Altar of Freedom will absolutely be Gettysburg? Maybe. There are several campaigns in various stages of design and play-testing right now. I'll certainly use the results to inform the pace and order of future projects, but in another great tradition of the American Republic, I reserve the right to ignore the will of the people when it suits me. On that note, Happy 4th everyone!
