536 9/12/2017 8:35:00 AM Fall 1863 Union Play Strategy card as Event #103: 3 / Seven Days/Chattanooga
Either player may move 2 SPs using Strategic Movement from the same space using rail connections only (10 space maximum) to the same space with a General who is then activated and must attempt to enter a space with at least one or more enemy SPs or fort. OR play this card as an automatic 2 space interception. Intervening space must be friendly controlled and free of enemy SPs. The intervening space may be the one just exited by the moving enemy force. No Generals or SPs may be picked up or dropped off during the intercept.

Message from Union:
Well Buell and the 2SP in Manassas could have tried to interecept several points along the way, but they wouldn't have as they like the Fort..but the AOP and its 7SP would love to join the fun with this card

So battle would be
6v9
CSA +4
USA +2 for for, +2 for intercept +6 for leaders
535 9/12/2017 3:55:00 AM Fall 1863 Confederate Play Strategy card as Operations #40: 3 / Emergency Call for Volunteers

Message from Union:

Activate Grant and AOP. Drop Hooker with 6SP in Fredericksburg. Grant and the Army N8 move to Hanover.

519 8/23/2017 8:41:00 AM Fall 1863 Union Message According to my board (and checking the game log) you have only 1 SP in New Madrid. You picked up 2SP there in Fall of 1862 on move #277. In Spring 1863 and Summer 1863 you took the Missouri unit into St Louis, only in Fall 1863 did you put it in New Madrid..So you can move 1SP or take the 2 from Memphis I think.
518 8/23/2017 4:16:00 AM Fall 1863 Confederate Message Move 2 is not affected by your retreta choice.

Texas goes Union and we raid Ohio and Indiana, we can apply SW as we see fit but I suspect the following is best:

USA: -5-5-3cof+7+2cof = 59+
CSA: -7+5+5+2cof = 93+

Attrition

USA: AoP-2 n10, AoT-2 n6, AoC-1 n3, Vincennes-1 n2

Message from Union:
Hancock intercepts
480 8/18/2017 11:06:00 AM Summer 1863 Confederate Message Yes ,that's Vincennes, so we can just march past it, you can try to intercept, but if Hncock is there we won't send Bragg byi himself but send the whoel army leaving 1Sp behind us in each space (including 2 in Louisville) and finishing at Cincinnati.
479 8/18/2017 11:04:00 AM Summer 1863 Union Message I don't have my map in front of me but Hancock has 3SP in a port on space from Salem...so the dagger of the possible amph assault was not effective as you didn't realize it was there!
478 8/18/2017 11:01:00 AM Summer 1863 Confederate Message Hancock? He's not even on my map! Looking back I can see that he was in Vincennes so I guess he could intercept, which means I'd take the whole army with me.

Given my map must be wrong, where do you have him?
477 8/18/2017 10:58:00 AM Summer 1863 Union Message Isn't Hancock stopping you from getting to Indiana?
