Now, it appears that Apple has decided to join them by pulling many Civil War wargames from the App Store. As of the writing of this story, games like Ultimate General: Gettysburg and all the Hunted Cow Civil War games are nowhere to be found. Apple is famous for reaching for the axe rather than the scalpel when it comes to political issues (like rejecting Hunted Cow's Tank Battle 1942 for depicting Germans and Russians as enemies), so this move doesn't come as a great surprise.

There's no logic or reason to anything anymore, everything is a meaningless, useless knee-jerk reaction to the feels of the day. I want off this planet.

Who wants to come form an ARFCOM paradise on Mars with me?

And this suprised you.



Better start preparing, everone has been brainwashed and when

The zombies come you better have enough ammo so at least it will

Be a good fight.




And you better vote Republican so at least you will have a few months before

They come for your guns and unborn white racist children.

Not really.  This will blow over shortly.  Don't be surprised to see Rebel flags back up for sale on Amazon in 6 months.

In the mean time, the countless Civil War museums and parks will still be here, preserving the history for everyone to see.

And again...obama, in his book, talks about realizing at a young age that he wouldn't be able to provoke the kind of revolution he sought through force and low level organizing. It's what drove him to politics...

The media definitely plays up the liberal agenda as progressing or achieving more than it has to gain momentum and fool the idiots into thinking progressivism is working but I have to disagree this country definitely is going to shit and one of the root causes is the obsession with everything being "PC".

As you may have been already informed (Read Facebook link), Apple has removed our game from AppStore because of usage of the Confederate Flag. Ultimate General: Gettysburg could be accepted back if the flag is removed from the game's content.

We accept Apple's decision and understand that this is a sensitive issue for the American Nation. We wanted our game to be the most accurate, historical, playable reference of the Battle of Gettysburg. All historical commanders, unit composition and weaponry, key geographical locations to the smallest streams or farms are recreated in our game's battlefield.

We receive a lot of letters of gratitude from American teachers who use our game in history curriculum to let kids experience one of the most important battles in American history from the Commander's perspective.  

Spielberg’s "Schindler's List" did not try to amend his movie to look more comfortable. The historical "Gettysburg" movie (1993) is still on iTunes. We believe that all historical art forms: books, movies, or games such as ours, help to learn and understand history, depicting events as they were. True stories are more important to us than money.

Therefore we are not going to amend the game's content and Ultimate General: Gettysburg will no longer be available on AppStore. We really hope that Apple’s decision will achieve the desired results.

We can’t change history, but we can change the future.

the civil war is a microaggression for a lot of people. Better to just write it out of the history books and pretend it didn't happen like the progressives do in europe (Hitler? what Hitler? Nazis? We BANNED them) for all those historical events that make us have bad feelings.
