Message from Union:

338 4/23/2018 1:09:00 PM Summer 1863 Union Message Holy Moley, thats just unbeliavable! But you are right, 2/3 chance to win is always a go. Fortunately for me, McDowell was furious after few turns of idling.
337 4/23/2018 12:59:00 PM Summer 1863 Confederate Play Strategy card as Event #81: 3 / Emancipation Proclamation - Reshuffle/Remove
Either player must play this card as an EC on the Strategy Round immediately following a Union large or medium battle victory. Confederate loses 10 SW and 3 SPs (his choice). Union loses 5 SW. Flip GT marker to its Emancipation Proclamation side. Card must be the last one played by a player at which time it can be played as an OC card. If the play of this card as an OC results in a battle victory, there is no Emancipation Proclamation Remove from deck if event is played. If this card is played as an OC or discarded re-shuffle deck at the end of the Strategy Phase.

333 4/23/2018 10:12:00 AM Summer 1863 Union Message Right about interception thing, you can only take along as many troops and generals as you during a normal movement. Seems that the hero of the union is once again McDowell who shows Grant how things get done.

I'll guess you can't intercept anymore during this activation right? And as Bragg is the most "capable" general in Richmond, he will arrange defences.

If thats the case:
m4 PC Drewys bluff
m5 attack Richmond
m6 PC

Come on McDowell, now its your finest hour!

326 4/23/2018 12:49:00 AM Summer 1863 Confederate Message if that's the case, I can only intercept with 4 (including Wheeler)
325 4/23/2018 12:48:00 AM Summer 1863 Confederate Message actually, wait, I'm limited on how many I can bring. Do I have to leave 3 in Richmond since I have 4 generals there?

Played prior to a battle against an army possessing one or more cavalry brigades. The ONLY effects are the Armyís Commanding Generalís battle rating (offense or defense) is immediately reduced by 2 and no Cavalry generalís battle ratings may be used in the battle. The effects end at the conclusion of the battle. Cavalry generals are not available for casualty determination. OR: Place one PC marker in any space within four spaces (includes river connections) of a single cavalry brigade. The four space range many not be traced through Northeast Alabama. The space may not contain an enemy SP or fort, but may contain an Ironclad or Torpedoes.

288 4/22/2018 2:44:00 AM Spring 1863 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.
