87 3/3/2017 8:00:00 AM Fall 1861 Union Message That is an odd move. Had me wondering for about one hour what card you might have...mmm Let me check some rules.
CSA Cav can't cross the Ohio without a fort right?
I can Division move across most of Kentucky as the spaces are USA correct?
The AoT is OOC right now, but as soon as I move them to Dover..1) the fort disappears as there is no garrison and it is not a coastal fort..and 2) they are back in supply and can convert the square?
