557 3/20/2019 10:28:00 PM Summer 1863 Confederate Message yes sir it does...
556 3/16/2019 3:27:00 PM Summer 1863 Union Message Does AoT lose it's Army Morale bonus since the lost the battle? I believe it is yes per 22.5.4.
555 3/16/2019 3:25:00 PM Summer 1863 Union Message Well Rosecrans was in "RED" on the TRT whereas Meade was not. So I would assume Rosecrans is definitely gone from the game per 16.4.

I'm not sure if Meade just goes to the Displaced box for the East via 11.2.4 or 14.6 since he was not shown in "RED"?

Sorry for all the questions. I continue to fight with the rules.


554 3/16/2019 3:09:00 PM Summer 1863 Union Message That's fine. That was one of the things I wasn't sure about, since leaders typically stayed in the game unless specifically removed due to TRT.

So is he gone from the game or just removed to the TRT? The same would go for General Meade with AotP.
553 3/16/2019 11:56:00 AM Summer 1863 Confederate Message General Rosecrans is supposed to have been removed from command also.........

Sherman goes to AotC taking over for Rosecrans

Schofield goes to Corinth
Brannan joins AotC as my free 1 or 2 ** transfer
537 3/13/2019 10:26:00 AM Summer 1863 Confederate Message I think Grant & Sherman for instance could be transferred wherever you want them...
536 3/13/2019 10:26:00 AM Summer 1863 Confederate Message ok well the way I read it there are 2 situations: first if you have a situation like Turn 13 we have; "R Rosecrans P Thomas" you can replace Rosecrans with Thomas because they are in the same box I think. (2)"if he does not share a box with another General, then he may be transferred to any legal space".
535 3/12/2019 6:49:00 PM Summer 1863 Confederate Message I think we have 'overthink'....just place them wherever you want and remove the lesser ranked one...
534 3/12/2019 12:30:00 AM Summer 1863 Union Message I'm not sure I understand the procedure how to do it to replace another commander of an army that isn't in the same box on the TRT.
533 3/12/2019 12:27:00 AM Summer 1863 Union Message General I'm having pains trying to figure out all the possible General Transfers. May have a question or two tomorrow. :)))

529 3/9/2019 10:41:00 AM Summer 1863 Confederate Message Just double check me please General on VP's as of current turn: WVA=3 VA=4 NC=0 SC=0 FL=1 AL=0 MS=3 LA=7 ARK=5 TX=0 + Blockade DRM points = North ATL=4/2=2 South ATL 5/2=2.5 Gulf=6/2=3 total=7.5
