718 11/29/2017 5:53:00 PM Spring 1864 Union Message VERY INTERESTING I HAVE NO IDEA WHAT THAT MEANT
717 11/29/2017 2:42:00 PM Spring 1864 Confederate Message 5.61 RELIEVING GENERALS: A player may only replace a commanding general of an Army by relieving him. In order to relieve an Army commanding general there must be at least one other non-Cavalry General in the Army. Cavalry Generals may never be placed in command of an Army. The player plays an OC of any value and states he is relieving an Army commanding general. The play of an OC initiates the relief of only one Army commanding general, but if that general is also transferred, then another Army’s commanding general will be relieved [5.62]. A relieved general is either transferred, demoted [5.63] or permanently removed from the game [5.64]. The player that relieves a general immediately reduces his SW by the general’s political value. If the Army was defeated in a large battle on the owning player’s last strategy round (even from the previous turn), the SW cost to relieve the Army’s commanding general is half (rounded up) of what it would be otherwise. The player may designate any other general in the Army as the new commanding general. If the new commanding general did not have the next highest political value in the stack, then 2 SW points are paid for each general over which the new commanding general was promoted.

716 11/29/2017 2:40:00 PM Spring 1864 Confederate Message 5.66 MOVING GENERALS: An Army may drop off a general with or without SPs during its move, although the restrictions in 5.34 must be met. An Army may pick up a general during its move, but the restrictions in 5.29 must be met. A Corps move may drop off and pick up generals, but the restrictions in 5.34 must be met. A Division move may be initiated from a space with a general, but the restrictions in 5.29 must be met. Cavalry Brigades may not pick up or drop off generals. A general moving without SPs may not enter enemy-controlled spaces (whether in enemy, neutral, or friendly controlled states) even if the enemy controlled space contains a friendly SP or fort. A general moving without SPs may not enter ANY space containing enemy SPs or a fort (even a Union general using naval movement along a river connection under Union naval control). DESIGN NOTE: Moving generals without SPs is intended to be restrictive, so if there is some situation that a player can dream up that is not explicitly mentioned in 5.66, the answer is NO.

you will have SR -5 from Meade
he goes to turn track

715 11/29/2017 2:07:00 PM Spring 1864 Union Play Strategy card as Operations #79: 1 / Indian Allies

If the above condition cannot be met then the Union player receives 4 SPs in any friendlycontrolled space in PA, DE or NJ free of Confederate SPs. If no legal spaces are available then the SPs are lost.

CENTRAL: The Union player receives 6 SPs in any friendly controlled space(s) in OH or IN free of Confederate SPs. The space(s) must be able to trace a LOC via road or rail connections off the north map edge. If no legal spaces are available then the SPs are lost.
