441 3/24/2017 6:11:00 PM Summer 1863 Union Message Union Reinforcements:

440 3/24/2017 5:58:00 PM Spring 1863 Union End Turn
439 3/24/2017 5:58:00 PM Spring 1863 Union Message Union PC markers placed in the following
Grafton, WV; Strasburg, Burkeville, Amelia C.H., Dreys Bluff, Richmond, VA (-12 CSA / +12 USA shift)
Monroe, Shreveport, LA; Marshall (-1 CSA SW, +1 USA SW), Nacogdoches, Sabine City, TX
I think thats it for PC markers

USA gains control of Texas and CSA looses 7SW
USA gains control of WV (+5SW) and remaining spaces become union controlled

Attrition:
1SP from the Union AoP
2SPs from the Union AoM
1SP from the CSA AoT
I think that's pretty much it for attrition

[Gonna take away those 3 PC markers I placed in AR, and remove 5 Union SW from that 1862 Fall political phase]

End of Spring 1863

436 3/23/2017 4:04:00 PM Spring 1863 Confederate Play Strategy card as Operations #82: 3 / Foreign Intervention - Reshuffle/Remove
Either player can play this card as an EC when Confederate SW is 110+. If this is the last card in a players hand or the second to last and the player holds the Emancipation Proclamation, if the condition is met, it must be played as an EC, if not it can be played as an OC. EFFECTS: 1. Union Blockade reduced by one (cannot become greater than 4 for the remainder of the game). 2. Union -2 SP Reinforcements for the remainder of the game (Union choice). 3. Union SW reduced by 10. Remove from deck if event is played. If card is played as an OC or discarded re-shuffle deck at end of the Strategy Phase.

Message from Confederate:
Playing this for 3 OPs to place a fort in Paducah, KY

424 3/23/2017 3:02:00 PM Spring 1863 Union Play Strategy card as Operations #104: 1 / Big Bethel
Either player may move up to two infantry SPs from the same space as if they were led by a General. This move is a Corps move and may enter enemy controlled spaces because the SPs are moving as if they are led by a general.

Message from Union:
I think you know what's next

Confederate player immediately receives three SPs in a single space, and loses three SW points. SPs must be placed in a friendly controlled space (including Pro-Union spaces) with a LOC free of Union SPs.

Message from Union:

422 3/23/2017 2:01:00 PM Spring 1863 Confederate Message Ok. Since Jackson can't keep moving, that should be the end of CSA Card Play #5
421 3/23/2017 1:52:00 PM Spring 1863 Union Message agree on the losses and SW shift.

Pope retreats back to Humbolt
420 3/23/2017 1:47:00 PM Spring 1863 Confederate Message I think Jackson takes the field, USA takes 5 SP losses, and CSA takes 4?

I also think that is 5 SW loss for the USA, and 5 SW gain for CSA (3 +2 for changing fortunes of war), correct?

Union places (or flips in border states) two PC markers in any spaces free of Confederate SPs or forts which are not Resource spaces, Blockade Runner Ports, or Coastal forts. Void after Emancipation Proclamation. Remove from deck if event is played.

Message from Confederate:
Hell, I don't know, lets play this for ops activate Jackson in Decatur, AL, with his 3 SP, and Morgan's Brigade. Will move

->Columbia -> Franklin -> Nashville, picking up 2 SP (and leaving 1 with Beauregard) -> Franklin -> Decatur -> Tuscumbia -> Corinth

That is 8 moves, but all by rail, so I should get 2 bonus MP as long as they are rail moves. Lets move into Grand Junction with the first. Union Reaction?
413 3/23/2017 9:56:00 AM Spring 1863 Union Message Playing this for OPs to relieve McClellan from command of the AoP
10SW penalty because everyone loves him
Gonna just remove him from the game
Grant is promoted to AoP Army Commander
Don't think there is any additional SW penalty as no Union general on the map has a higher Political Rating

End of USA Strategy Card #4
412 3/22/2017 6:42:00 PM Spring 1863 Confederate Play Strategy card as Event #17: 3 / CSA Purchasing Agent

Message from Union:

Grant is incorporated into the AoP

End of USA Strategy Card #3
410 3/21/2017 2:09:00 PM Spring 1863 Confederate Message CSA wins, both sides take an SP loss, don't need to roll for general casualties with the 3-1 ratio. Lee then moves to Ft Monroe, capturing it. (don't even no if I need to spend an MP, but I will have extra anyway). Will then move to Williamsburg and back to Richmond.

407 3/21/2017 2:03:00 PM Spring 1863 Confederate Play Strategy card as Operations #59: 2 / Farragut
Union may make a naval more with up to three SPs plus one general. Move may pass one ungarrisoned fort without “running the guns” to conduct an amphibious assault (may not pass an ironclad). Ignore first torpedo encountered during naval move. If the port space is captured it immediately receives a Union PC marker. Add +2 to Running the Guns die roll.

Message from Confederate:
playing this to activate the Army of NV. moving to Williamsburg, I don't think you can react, and I believe the modifiers for battle are +7 for the CSA and none for the Union.
406 3/21/2017 1:51:00 PM Spring 1863 Union Message

Either player may remove or demote from army command one general for no SW penalty. Penalties for promoting a general with a lower political value still apply. OR remove ANY non-commanding general (even second in commands) from the game.

Union places or flips three PC markers in Missouri. The spaces may not contain Confederate SPs or forts.

Message from Confederate:
let's play this for 2 OPs, and activate Lee and the Army of Northern Virginia.

We will move -> Culpepper -> Gordonsville - > Hanover and engage the 1 SP there.

I have the modifiers as +7 for the CSA (3 for Lee, +1 each for Bragg and Wheeler, and +2 for 3-1 force ratio.) and +0 for the USA I don't think I need to roll for results or general casualties, you can roll to make sure you inflict an SP loss on me.

Sorry about that
365 3/18/2017 4:31:00 PM Spring 1863 Union Message OK, I'll probably need to redo my move then if you don't mind. I'll dig in the rules to make sure but I took the link to mean that only the union could use it for strategic movement, not the CSA, and both could use it for normal movement
