54 9/9/2017 11:02:00 PM Summer 1861 Confederate Message Certainly a strong hand. I wish I had had a 2, or a less valuable 3, in the first turn; I would have consolidated in the East but I was greedily thinking of how much 2 SPs would help to counterbalance the 5 from Douglass. You played the cards you were dealt well though.

I'll make another; I'd prefer to give the Confederates another go.
53 9/9/2017 10:56:00 PM Summer 1861 Union Message thank you, but I feel my cards pretty much played themselves...I mean Fredrick Douglas into Minor into Major is ridiculous, probably the strongest opening cards I've ever had. As always, feel free to set up another and pick sides.
52 9/9/2017 10:55:00 PM Summer 1861 Confederate Message True. I should have placed a blocking force! With no reinforcements incoming and the steamroller in motion, I'll concede. Well played!
51 9/9/2017 10:52:00 PM Summer 1861 Union Message I don't think you can form an army when you're OOS

Message from Confederate:
Well, if you have another 3 I think have no recourse (I guess I ought to have retreated JJ and Beau together earlier!)
