154 8/5/2018 7:35:00 AM Turn 3 Union Message I am going to pass as well. I considered attacking Gettysburg itself, but it seems too risky at this point.

Rudy, I want to thank you a very exciting game and thank you for your patience with a few of my mistakes!

From my perspective, this seems like a tough game for the Rebs. The forces are about even and the CSA needs to get to Gettysburg quick and then try to clear out the Union forces even though they are on ~equal terms as far as numbers are concerned. It would be very interesting t see where the game would have gone had Longstreet successfully joined in the assaults on Sickles during turn 2. The Union left would have been defeated and the Union forces Evergreen Cemetery would have been outflanked.
153 8/4/2018 10:12:00 AM Turn 3 Confederate Message Thanks, you are right about Early. CSA passes.

152 8/4/2018 6:38:00 AM Turn 3 Union Message I adjusted Fatigues on my units in 3403 for assault.

I actually think that Early did not need to lose an SP on his retreat. His first retreat space was into a friendly occupied space (Hill) and I believe that saves him from an SP loss. In any case, I assumed so and reversed the SP loss. Let em know if you disagree on this point.

No advance into 3402.

Init 34: CSA...
151 8/3/2018 9:16:00 PM Turn 3 Confederate Message Retreat and lost another SP. The additional assaulters should have become more fatigued also, I think. You may advance.

Yes, Ken and I are into day 3 of Scenario 8. Great fun!


146 8/2/2018 4:59:00 PM Turn 3 Union Message Hi Rudy, Did you load up a vassal log for your last move? I do not see it in the directory.

PS - I heard from Ken Campbell that you and he have started a Maryland campaign. That sounds fun. It will be nice to do some maneuvering and actually recover units after our short game!
145 8/2/2018 2:11:00 PM Turn 3 Confederate Message A couple of failed attacks on Reynolds. Then I pass. Not looking good.

111 7/17/2018 4:25:00 PM Turn 2 Union Message I am going to pass as well, thus bringing July 2 to a close. I assume that we will both do the recovery for our own units again. I will do the recovery for the US units a little later this evening.

89 7/6/2018 7:08:00 AM Turn 2 Union Message The tension builds as Pickett approaches!

27: Robertson advances
28: Yankees are up.
83 7/4/2018 6:28:00 AM Turn 2 Union Message Init 24: Doubleday refuses Flanks
Init 25: CSA...
82 7/3/2018 11:11:00 PM Turn 2 Confederate Message Took your advice to bring up Pickett and Imboden with init 22&23.
Init 24 back to you.
81 7/3/2018 9:32:00 PM Turn 2 Union Message Init 22: Sykes moves up to the Round Tops.
Init 23: CSA, over to you...

Thanks for adjusting VP track.
80 7/3/2018 4:37:00 PM Turn 2 Confederate Message Early advances and the Union wins init 22.
79 7/2/2018 8:14:00 PM Turn 2 Union Message You are correct about the US KIAs, they should be at 6. I never recorded Birney's loss on the VP track. My apologies.

Do you want Early to advance into 3303?

78 7/2/2018 7:32:00 AM Turn 2 Confederate Message I thought that there were 2 battles where we each lost 1SP early on. Then you lost 2 in cavalry retreats. Recently, Birney lost 1 and now Geary. That would be 6.
77 7/2/2018 5:37:00 AM Turn 2 Union Message A couple of things. On the VP track, you increased the US KIA by 2. US was at 4 at start of log file, so I believe that US should be a 5 now (not 6). Second, Geary was at F0, so I believe he should be at F3 after the assault. I adjusted both, but let me know if I missed something.

Geary takes 1 MV loss (8 to 7)
Slocum and stack retreats to 3005

I'm not sure if you want Early to advance into 3303. Go ahead and move him if you wish and then you can roll for init 22.

76 7/1/2018 11:38:00 PM Turn 2 Confederate Message Init 21?: Early pushed Slocum and his cavalry support back.
75 7/1/2018 8:11:00 PM Turn 2 Union Message Oh man!! I am truly sorry to hear that. I've done the same thing a few times but never with a successful grand assault. Hopefully, your GCACW Karma will be up and it will all balance out!

As far as Early's attack on Slocum, the Cav will stay and fight!

The Fam and I went to the beach today. We were packed in tight! Had about 2 sq yards of space. Probably was not the best of ideas!
74 7/1/2018 10:27:00 AM Turn 2 Confederate Message I had a terrific assault with Anderson, McLaws and Hood that drove Sickles out of the Peach Orchard. However, I forgot to start a new logfile. When I continued, Longstreet refused to send his men in again. Anderson was shredded by himself.
Init 21: Ewell thinks that it is practicable to attack Slocum with Early. Stopping for possible cavalry retreat.
73 7/1/2018 6:05:00 AM Turn 2 Union Message Birney took 1 MV Union loss, adjusted VP Track.

Init 20: CSA keeps initiative ...
72 6/30/2018 11:03:00 PM Turn 2 Confederate Message Init 18- Attempted Grand Assault on Sickles. Pender and Longstreet did not budge. Suffered 3Sp loss compared to 1Sp for Sickles. Please take your loss and roll for init.
71 6/30/2018 4:43:00 PM Turn 2 Union Message Buford retreats.

One thing, during Init 16, I believe Early could have only reached 3401 and not 3502. He only had 3 MP and needed to add +1 MP when he left the Union ZOC moving from 3201 to 3334. No big deal, but that would mean Early had 2 MP remaining before the Cav Retreat. In that case, Early's move would be over after Cav retreat. Let me know if you disagree.
70 6/30/2018 1:22:00 PM Turn 2 Confederate Message I split my moves into two turns because I had to leave in the middle. Early has 3mp left and is adjacent to some cavalry. Do you retreat?
69 6/30/2018 7:34:00 AM Turn 2 Union Message Init 14: Sykes moves toward line, redeployed Art Res-2
Init 15: Rebs...
68 6/29/2018 10:28:00 PM Turn 2 Confederate Message Init 12: Law advances towards Longstreet;
Init 13: Johnson advances towards Ewell
Init 14:Yanks are up!
67 6/29/2018 6:31:00 AM Turn 2 Union Message Init 9: 1st Corps reinforces line
init 10: Sykes moves to Rock Creek
init 11: Sedgwick moves to Baltimore Pike
init 12: CSA ...
66 6/27/2018 10:40:00 PM Turn 2 Confederate Message Init 7: Hood continues his move
Init 8: Hill gathers his forces
Init 9: back to you.

65 6/27/2018 9:52:00 PM Turn 2 Union Message Thanks for catching the KIA mistake.

Merritt retreats, -3 MP for Hood.


64 6/27/2018 9:02:00 PM Turn 2 Confederate Message Hood now activates in front of Merritt, retreat?
63 6/27/2018 8:06:00 PM Turn 2 Union Message Devin and Farnsworth retreat but do a poor job of it. Longsteet/McLaws still have 1 MP left.

B2U...
62 6/27/2018 1:25:00 PM Turn 2 Confederate Message Fancy rolling. Changed a few plans.
Init 7: Activate Longstreet. McLaws moved adjacent to some cavalry with 3MP left. Any retreats?
61 6/26/2018 10:26:00 PM Turn 2 Union Message OK, I used the entrenchments during my turn. You will see, the luck was with the Yanks on init rolls to start turn 2.

Init 1: Barlow found support, Schurz entrenched
Init 2: Schurz entrenched again
Init 3: Hancock began advance into Union Line
Init 4: Gibbon, Hays complete march into Union Line
Init 5,6: Humphreys Entrenches
Init 7: CSA wins, over to you...
60 6/26/2018 9:24:00 PM Turn 2 Confederate Message I am okay with using the optional entrenchment rules.
59 6/26/2018 8:19:00 PM Turn 2 Union Message Ok. Before I make my moves, are you ok if we play with the optional 1863 entrenchment rules? That would mean that units could entrench as an action in addition to entrenching during recovery. It is an optional rule, so I want to be sure that we agree one way or the other.
58 6/26/2018 1:50:00 PM Turn 2 Confederate Message Day 2 starts with US Initiative. Do your worst.
57 6/25/2018 6:30:00 AM Turn 1 Union End Turn
56 6/25/2018 6:30:00 AM Turn 1 Union Message CSA Recovery looks good:
Completed Union Recovery. Let me know if anything does not look right.
Complete Union Leader Transfers for Turn 2.
Over to for CSA Leader Transfers / Init Roll.
