I think my position is hopeless. I've learned a lot from this game and I think I'm beginning to understand the dynamics of it. If you are happy to start another (I'd rather play Union), then I can set up. I think I placed too much hope in being able to bludgeon the CS through attritional attacks, but it didn't work.

Let me know.
