533 5/22/2018 2:24:00 PM Summer 1864 Union Play Strategy card as Operations #70: 2 / Gustavus Fox, Ironclad Building Program
The Union Amphibious Assault modifier is increased by two.

Message from Union:
Activate AoP and just 5SP at Frederick, leaving 2SP in the fort.
1) DC. Pick up McDowell and 5SP(AoP n10). DC now Schofield, Reynolds and 11SP.
2) Frederick
3) Attack Manassas at 10-9. Medium battle. USA +8, CSA +8. Yours to resolve.
532 5/22/2018 2:19:00 PM Summer 1864 Union Message McDowell and 4SP retreat to DC(n16).

Just a reminder... Hardee has a higher P-rating than Hood, so you would have had to activate Hood without Hardee and 1SP, move away, then move back and pick him up. You could have done that so no problem.

459 5/4/2018 1:36:00 PM Spring 1864 Union Message No, I do not agree. Sherman is in command, promoted past both McClellan and Fremont, so there is -2 SW for each of them. Same rule you cited.

457 5/3/2018 5:15:00 PM Spring 1864 Confederate Message 5.61 RELIEVING GENERALS: A player may only replace a commanding general of an Army by relieving him. In order to relieve an Army commanding general there must be at least one other non-Cavalry General in the Army. Cavalry Generals may never be placed in command of an Army. The player plays an OC of any value and states he is relieving an Army commanding general. The play of an OC initiates the relief of only one Army commanding general, but if that general is also transferred, then another Army’s commanding general will be relieved [5.62]. A relieved general is either transferred, demoted [5.63] or permanently removed from the game [5.64]. The player that relieves a general immediately reduces his SW by the general’s political value. If the Army was defeated in a large battle on the owning player’s last strategy round (even from the previous turn), the SW cost to relieve the Army’s commanding general is half (rounded up) of what it would be otherwise. The player may designate any other general in the Army as the new commanding general. If the new commanding general did not have the next highest political value in the stack, then 2 SW points are paid for each general over which the new commanding general was promoted.

you only need to -6 for McDowell

456 5/2/2018 3:24:00 PM Spring 1864 Union Play Strategy card as Operations #89: 1 / Quaker Guns

EFFECTS: 1. Union Blockade reduced by one (cannot become greater than 4 for the remainder of the game). 2. Union -2 SP Reinforcements for the remainder of the game (Union choice). 3.
