Are you purposefully trying to recreate old style rules? It seems to me like a lot of work for not a lot of pay off. I don't think the granularity equates to realism or historical results.

it Is very playable. Averages 3 hours with 3-6 players. It takes about 20 minutes or less to get the system down then it plays itself. Very playable and fun.

I did not try to emulate old style rules. It started as a set of rules over 20 years ago to introduce tactics and history in my Civil War and US studies classes in high school. I have played variations of this with classes of over 20 and they liked it.
