If say sometime after 1870 a Prussian army (German) met in the field a
similar army from the American civil war (either from the north or
from the south or even a combined army)...what would the tactics
be... similar? A one sided clash?

Who would have stood on the field triumphant at the end of the day?

Phil Sheridan observed the Franco-Prussian War, and
was not impressed by either side.
