93 7/6/2018 9:34:00 PM Turn 2 Union Message Init 37a: Gamble elects to "change base" for future operations.

I did not roll for the battle but could do so in the future in similar situations. Let me know if you would prefer that I do that in the future to speed up play.

28: Yankees are up.

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.

55 6/24/2018 9:07:00 PM Turn 1 Confederate Message Ok recovery completed for CS and file sent.

54 6/24/2018 8:54:00 PM Turn 1 Confederate Message I am passing. I will do my recovery and then send it to you.


53 6/24/2018 8:35:00 PM Turn 1 Union Message Init 55: DM Gregg moves to Granite Hill RR Station
Init 56: Buford moves to Emmitsburg Pike
Init 57: Sickles/Humphreys joins Birney on Emmitsburg Pike
Init 58: US Passes, over to you..

If you are thinking about passing, I want to let you know that I've had several experiences with this Module where the automatic recovery has errors. I recommend that we do the recovery manually. At least, we should save a file immediately before the recovery so we can check.


52 6/24/2018 5:37:00 PM Turn 1 Confederate Message CSA passes

51 6/24/2018 2:10:00 PM Turn 1 Union Message Init 51: Sedgwick move past Sell RR Station
Init 52: Hancock moves to Harmony PO
Init 53: DM Gregg moves to Redland PO

Init 51: CSA passes...
49 6/24/2018 7:18:00 AM Turn 1 Union Message Init 49: Sedgwick move northwest
Init 50: over to the Rebels...
48 6/23/2018 1:04:00 PM Turn 1 Confederate Message Init 47 & 48 Robertson advanced. At first quickly, but then slowly. I think he was afraid of being ambushed in the passes.
Init 49: Yanks.
47 6/23/2018 10:32:00 AM Turn 1 Union Message Init 46: Sedgwick moves toward Hanover.
Init 47: CSA

PS - I'll be out all afternoon and evening, so no need to rush to make your next move. I may be able to make a move tonight between 8-10 otherwise, it will be tomorrow morning.
46 6/23/2018 9:31:00 AM Turn 1 Confederate Message Init 45: Beverly Robertson visited Hagerstown.
Init 46: Yanks.
45 6/23/2018 6:06:00 AM Turn 1 Union Message Init 42: DM Gregg moved northwest
Init 43: Kilpatrick moved west across Emmitsburg Pike
Init 44: Sykes moved past Littlestown
Init 45: Back to you...
44 6/22/2018 9:26:00 PM Turn 1 Confederate Message Fixed Stuart.
Init 40 & 41 Grumble Jones moves towards the mountains.
Back to you for 42
43 6/22/2018 5:59:00 AM Turn 1 Union Message Thanks and thanks for checking Cav attack. That was the first purely Cav attack that I had executed in this game system. No problem with Stuart's Brigs., go ahead and move them this init if you want. In the dropbox folder, I created a directory call "archive" and moved all of the older log files there.

For moves:
Init 39: Sykes competes with Hancock for slowest corps in the AoP. Both are very good.
Init 40: over to CSA
42 6/21/2018 9:57:00 PM Turn 1 Confederate Message BTW, attack on 17VA looked fine, especially after you caught flank modifier! Nicely done.
41 6/21/2018 9:57:00 PM Turn 1 Confederate Message I forgot to move Stuart...
Inits 37&38 Jenkins cavalry brigade advances
init 39 - Union is up.
40 6/21/2018 9:28:00 PM Turn 1 Union Message I checked the rules for this scenario and Stuart is listed as a corps commander (see pg55 of rules). Feel free to move his units 1 space if you want.

Init 34: Kilpatrick attacks 17 VA Cav. Let me know if you see anything wrong with Attack or DRMs
Init 35: Merritt moves to Pitzer's Schoolhouse
Init 36: Hancock crawls through Tanneytown
Init 37: Over to CSA
39 6/21/2018 2:48:00 PM Turn 1 Confederate Message Looks like I may be off by one in the init numbers

38 6/21/2018 2:48:00 PM Turn 1 Confederate Message 28 - Law advances
29 - Johnson advances
30 - Stuart moves towards Adams County
31 and 32 the 17VA moves south
33 - Back to you.

37 6/21/2018 5:11:00 AM Turn 1 Union Message Init 28: Hancock inches toward Taneytown
Init 29: Back to CSA

36 6/20/2018 10:52:00 PM Turn 1 Confederate Message Sorry, dropbox is updated now.
35 6/20/2018 8:14:00 PM Turn 1 Union Message Hi Rudy, I just took a look in our dropbox folder and did not see an updated vassal log with Anderson's latest move. Did you load it into our folder?
34 6/20/2018 6:22:00 PM Turn 1 Confederate Message Init 27..Anderson limps forward and loses some deserters.
Init 28 - USA wins
33 6/20/2018 4:33:00 PM Turn 1 Union Message Thanks for your understanding on Move 20. Those mountain passes can be tough when the CSA Divs move that fast!!

Ini 24: Lockwood moved north
Ini 25: Stannard got stuck in traffic at Greenmount
Ini 26: Merritt Cav moves north
Ini 27: Over to you...
32 6/20/2018 1:52:00 PM Turn 1 Confederate Message Your explanation makes sense. You can move forward. No need to redo it.
31 6/20/2018 11:59:00 AM Turn 1 Union Message You are correct. Upon review of my last move, I agree that Williams did not have the required MPs to enter hex 3202 the way I played Initiative 20.

However, during Initiative 20, two units, Williams and Art Res 3, were activated and moved into hex 3202 during the same activation. If I had moved the units in the opposite order (i.e. moved Williams first and Art Res 3 second), then both units could have moved into hex 3202. In that case, Williams would have been able to enter the hex 3202 because there would have been only 11 CV present which would have only required a +1 MP Penalty to enter the hex. Afterwards, the Art Res 3 Brig. would been able to enter the hex and pay the +2 MP penalty now required with 12+ CV present in the hex.

Based upon the fact that there existed a possible method to move both Williams and the Art Res into hex 3202, are you ok if leave the board is? If this is too confusing to follow with only words, I can redo the ini 20 log in a legal fashion for clarity. I apologize for my sloppiness. In the future, I will be sure to have two cups of coffee before doing those early morning moves!

30 6/20/2018 9:07:00 AM Turn 1 Confederate Message Init 21- Law advances;
Init 22 and 23 Johnson advances and gets stuck in a traffic jam.
Please check Williams movement last turn.
Back to you.

29 6/20/2018 6:21:00 AM Turn 1 Union Message Ini 20: Slocum moves up to Evergreen Cemetery, Art Res 2,3 advance.
Ini 21: Back to CSA
28 6/19/2018 8:56:00 PM Turn 1 Confederate Message Longstreet extends the confederate lines..
Back to you

27 6/19/2018 5:45:00 AM Turn 1 Union Message ini 16: Birney advance to Peach Orchard, Art Res1,2,3 moves up
ini 17: Slocum, Geary advance to Two Taverns
ini 18: Hancock moves toward Tanytown
ini 19: Over to CSA
26 6/18/2018 1:33:00 PM Turn 1 Confederate Message Init 15 - Anderson pushes 6 miles through the passes.
Init 16 - back to you.

25 6/18/2018 5:27:00 AM Turn 1 Union Message Ini 14: Slocum moves toward Gettysburg (although not as fast as he should!)
Ini 15: over to CSA

24 6/17/2018 11:06:00 PM Turn 1 Confederate Message Init 12 - Longstreet comes through the mountains.
Init 13 - Ewell advances to Gettysburg and Wolf's Hill
Back to you.

23 6/17/2018 8:09:00 PM Turn 1 Union Message ini 11: Sickles Corps + Art Res continue to move North.
ini 12: CSA, over to you...
22 6/17/2018 7:20:00 PM Turn 1 Confederate Message All good and agreed. Longstreet starts coming through the mountain. Back to you.

21 6/17/2018 5:53:00 PM Turn 1 Union Message I think I see where the confusion is coming from. You are thinking that Howard was still with Barlow. However, on ini 7, Howard transferred to Steinwehr and they both moved into Gettysburg with Schurz. You can see the move in "012_BoG_turn1_ini7.vlog". So, Howard was already in Gettysburg in Initiative 9.
20 6/17/2018 5:40:00 PM Turn 1 Union Message Howard was not part of Meade's stack that retreated to 3305. He was already in Gettysburg attached to Steinwehr. He only switched from Steinwehr to Schurz who was also in Gettysburg.
19 6/17/2018 12:46:00 PM Turn 1 Confederate Message I agree with Gamble being F#. Sorry, my mistake. However, I don't think that Howard can move to Gettysburg because it was more than 3 hexes away from Barlow.
18 6/17/2018 6:58:00 AM Turn 1 Union Message Gamble Cav was at F0 before battle, so I believe he should be at F3 after the “D” result. I am adjusting to F3; let me know if you disagree. I advanced Hill and Heth into 3132.

ini 9: Howard Retreats
ini 10: Sickles, Art Res move north
ini 11: over to CSA…

17 6/16/2018 5:53:00 PM Turn 1 Confederate Message Heth drives the Union back. Please take your 1SP loss and conduct the retreat. Then you can roll for init.

16 6/16/2018 5:18:00 PM Turn 1 Union Message No cavalry Retreat. You may continue...
