446 8/10/2017 10:29:00 AM Fall 1863 Union Play Strategy card as Operations #105: 1 / Detached Cavalry
Played prior to a battle against an army possessing one or more cavalry brigades. The ONLY effects are the Army’s Commanding General’s battle rating (offense or defense) is immediately reduced by 2 and no Cavalry general’s battle ratings may be used in the battle. The effects end at the conclusion of the battle. Cavalry generals are not available for casualty determination. OR: Place one PC marker in any space within four spaces (includes river connections) of a single cavalry brigade. The four space range many not be traced through Northeast Alabama. The space may not contain an enemy SP or fort, but may contain an Ironclad or Torpedoes.

Union immediately receives three SPs for raising Negro troops. The SPs can be placed in any Union controlled space (even one without a LOC) that doesn’t contain a Confederate SP or fort.

Message from Confederate:
Well, Lee has to face the truth...Richmond is not defensible any longer...and if he stays there, it will just mean the destruction of the AoNV, so he issues an order to evacuate the city...Activate the AoNV, which will move as follows, picking up SP along the way...
1. Petersburg (p/u 1 SP (AoNV n7)
2. Hickford Junction
3. Weldon
4. Goldsboro (to fight your 1 SP there...)
