Elgin, Scotland - June 1st, 2014 - The thunder and fury of the American Civil War arrives on Mac as the next installment of Civil War: 1864, by Hunted Cow and HexWar, comes to the Mac App Store. Civil War: 1864 on Mac is available for $5.99 with no in-app purchases. Review codes are available; contact press@huntedcow.com.

1864 saw the Union army make substantial gains against the Confederate forces in the American Civil War. Grant, replacing Halleck, took the risky gamble of attacking the Confederates on three different fronts. While Grant failed to gain any significant tactical advantage in any battle against Robert E. Lee, he succeeded at depleting Lee's forces.

On the Western front, Sherman was able to capture Atlanta and seize Savannah. The Union's control of the railways and waterways gave them an immense logistical advantage, which would become vital to the North's eventual success. The Confederacy was ultimately fighting and losing a defensive war.
