Beareguard and 1 sp move back to Manassas and pick up 1 sp there(1 in manassas, 2 with Beauregard). Then Beauregard moves to Fredrick and picks up 3 sp's(1 in Fredrick, 5 with Beauregard). Beau moves to Gettysburg and drops 1 sp(4), then moves to Harrisburg and drops 1 sp there(3), then moves to York and drops 1 sp there(2), then to Baltimore and drop 1 sp there(1), then finish in Annapolis.
