649 5/23/2018 12:08:00 AM Spring 1865 Confederate Message Never mind ... you do. USA SW is 113-, not 103- (the bonus awarded before War Weariness). Also, I get 1 less SP reinforcement. Get rid of the SP in Port Hudson, LA.

631 5/21/2018 Fall 1864 Confederate Play Strategy card as Operations #26: 3 / Cotton is King
If played by Union, reduce Confederate SW by 2; if played by Confederate, Confederate immediately receives two SPs in any Blockade Runner port, no more than one SP per port, but more than 1SP per Blockade zone is permitted. If insufficient ports are available, the excess SPs are lost. Remove from deck if event is played.

629 5/20/2018 11:51:00 PM Fall 1864 Confederate Message You know, I can see the pattern here. You've focused on New Orleans, then Memphis, then Nashville. I figure Charleston is next ...
628 5/20/2018 11:50:00 PM Fall 1864 Union Message Note. I already moved the C SW down 5 in my file to 59- when I thought I destroyed Bobby Lee. I think you've moved your SW down 10 in all, when only 5 was required (and already marked).
627 5/20/2018 11:50:00 PM Fall 1864 Confederate Message BTW, my vacating Nashville doen't affect the movement cost.

I can't find anything restricted to the previous occupied space for the active player EXCEPT retreats.

https://www.nashvillepedaltavern.com/
623 5/20/2018 11:44:00 PM Fall 1864 Confederate Message It's only 5 SW, because YOUR SW is irrelevant. :-)
622 5/20/2018 11:44:00 PM Fall 1864 Union Message Spent 3 to get to Dover, 4 to Franklin. Are you saying that move to Nashville only cost 1 b/c you fled? Normally it would cost 2 per RR logistics. If I have on left, then torch the place for the SW
621 5/20/2018 11:43:00 PM Fall 1864 Confederate Message The RR LoC rule only requires that you stay "adjacent" to a space with a RR LoC; I think Nashville meets that definition, even though you'd be OOS because the attacker must trace supply from the space he's coming from. Thus, I conclude you have 1 MP left.
620 5/20/2018 11:42:00 PM Fall 1864 Union Message Alas, when has the die ever done me a favor? Well, I figure at least I'll get to burn Nashville for a 10 SW swing.

619 5/20/2018 11:41:00 PM Fall 1864 Confederate Message Succeeds. No battle yet. Grant has spent 5 MPs and it costs 2 MPs to pursue Lee. Do you want to use your last MP some other way?
618 5/20/2018 11:40:00 PM Fall 1864 Union Message Coming through Franklin, but not flagging it so as to be able to attack Nashville. I figure the +2 that gives you won't really matter.
Yes, you can avoid. I'm just jumping the gun with chance to obliterate a juicy army. Never done that. Go on, escape to Murfreesboro. I hope you roll a 6.

602 5/18/2018 8:47:00 AM Fall 1864 Union Message Agreed. Sorry, I'm have war weariness and am sloppy. I shouldn't rely on you to correct my mistakes.

601 5/18/2018 12:26:00 AM Fall 1864 Confederate Message I object!

Before: 9 in Cairo, 4 in Dover, total 13,
After: 3 in Cairo, 6 in Dover, 2 in Franklin, and 4 in Nashville, total 15.

Suggested correction: only 4 SPs in Dover.
600 5/17/2018 10:13:00 PM Fall 1864 Union Message Yes, good point. Schofield/Fremont take 6 to Dover, then Schofield and Hooker on to Franklin, with Schofield ending with 4 in Nashville.
599 5/17/2018 9:23:00 PM Fall 1864 Confederate Message You know how I *hate* pointing this out ... :-D

Schofield moves from Cairo
1) Paducah
2) Dover
3) Paducah

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.
