First game for me and my friend Luca this evening.
I have the 2nd edition, but we used 3.1v living rules (see this page).
We used the following advanced rules:
- supply;
- command table for movement;
- adnvances combat (with command tables and orders);
- leaders;

I played the Union and Luca played the Confederate.
The North lost in June 1862 (sigh!) even though we adopted the optional rule "Helping a Novice Union Player".
The game lasted about two hours and half. We made a mistake about some supply lines, but it was not so important for the outcome of the game.
It was a very tense match and very fun.

Things to remember:

1 - even a single entrenched crack infantry is a real "stronghold" very difficult to conquer;
2 - the cities between Washinton DC and New York with high recuitment values must always be well defended;
3 - naval movement/invasion must be used very wisely, probably not in the first years of the war.
