There are two ways to handle history in strategy games.
Either you go all in with detailed recreations of important battles and give players the chance to rewrite turning points in the military timeline, or you just use it as a backdrop and stuff what actually happened down the back of the metaphorical ignorance sofa.
The developer of The Bluecoats - North vs South took the latter approach, stripping away historical accuracy and context from its title, and turning the American Civil War into a territory-stealing game of Risk-lite.
Blue vs Grey
While it isn't the worst example of a strategy title on the App Store, The Bluecoats - North vs South is a little too muddled to really recommend
