161 4/20/2018 12:32:00 PM Spring 1862 Confederate Message OK, I see problems with the map...geez...

Below is my strats, cause I thought Bragg was in Indy instead of Vernon:
REb strats:
Vernon & Vincennes to AoMiss - n5
Madison, 2 from NO, & 2 from Chalreston => Louisville - n8

Since Bragg was at Vernon...I could NOT have strat moved that SP from there...so would have strat moved the Indy SP.
