The War of the Rebellion continued after the Election of 1864, and with this expansion kit for The Lost Cause so too does this game. With additional Confederate Resources and Leaders (including "Stonewall" Jackson and Longstreet), plus cards that extend the game into 1865 and enhance the narrative with several new Broadsheet events, you'll be whistling Dixie in no time!

Note: The Lost Cause expansion kit is not a "stand alone" game. You must own a copy of The Lost Cause to use it.

Game Components:

•   One 2-page, full-color Optional Rules sheet
•   Eight color, die-cut 5/8" mounted game pieces
•   12 (total) Headline and Broadsheet cards
