No, but a cool little tidbit of history: James Clyman - the man who sewed Jim Bridger's ear back on and told the Donner Party 'don't go that way' - served in the same company as Abraham Lincoln during the conflict.  Or so I have seen claimed in a book on the history of California focused on 1846.  Mr. Clyman is a real capsule of American history during his life.

Not really much to game. A couple of small skirmishes as the Sac and Foc
fled for their lives. Then you have the slaughter as they tried to get across
the Mississippi. As one officer put it was "A disgraceful affair."
