The initial setup.
The Battle of Pearl Harbor - Japan crushed the fleet but couldn't take the island itself. 

Germany facing pressure in turn three. 

Europe in turn Four or Five. Russia was on the ropes and the US was pinned behind the Japanese fleet.

A House Divided 
Dad (Confederacy) vs Zach (Union)

This is the overall situation at the end of 1862.

If you don't recognize the geography, that's Mobile, AL that has been captured by the Union. The closest forces the Confederacy has are at Pensacola, or New Orleans.

The Confederacy is making an attack across Indiana and Ohio hoping to draw Union forces away from Southern cities.

The Union forces are closing in on Richmond (the box with 3 units stacked in it).
