Civil Warcraft is an online project by artists Harvey Loves Harvey. This site presents a series of maps created for the game Warcraft III that can be downloaded and played by anyone. Each map presents a battle from the American Civil War, designed to be as historically accurate as possible. Each map features over 1000 soldiers, arrayed in their lines of battle at sunrise on the day of the famed fight.
Civil Warcraft is a study of virtual history, and through playing these games we intend to study the relationship between artificial and real history. Gamers are encouraged to return to this site after they have fought a battle and record the results. In this way we will be able to compare the outcome of these virtual battles to the historical facts. Is it possible for the South to win the Civil War?
