554 7/7/2018 8:17:00 PM Spring 1865 Confederate Play Strategy card as Event #3: 1 / Forward to Richmond
Union may activate any Union army within 4 spaces of Richmond, VA. The army must enter Richmond or move as close to Richmond as possible, but may convert spaces to maintain an LOC. All SPs associated with the army must be moved (no dropping off SPs), except 1 SP may be left if the Army began its movement from a fort (if last SP, move completed). If played by the Confederate, he draws a card from the Union hand which is discarded, and the Union player follows the instructions of this card as his next card play.

Message from Confederate:
I know you are coming at me, so I will make you come straight ahead. Cannot pickup or drop off any units from whichever army you move. If you move with Grant, I will attempt intercept with Stuart (1-4). You must discard a card.
