WiP (longstreet): limbering up

Union artillery limbered up
At the time of writing this the Longstreet campaign is about a third of the way through its course. In campaign time we leaving 1862 and it pro confederate bonus and move into the more neutral 1863. In the campaign we start to see some subtle changes. New regiments of recruits suffers morale reduction from eager to steady. After two years of war and the eager volunteers are either in the cold earth or have gain more experience in fighting. The artillery allowance for each force is increased by 50% meaning more gnus to paint.  In addition the Union artillery start to flex its muscle and gets bonuses for artillery attacks.
