71 9/14/2018 10:52:00 AM Fall 1861 Confederate Message You're correct, I have 9cards - looks like I hit the end turn out of sequence some time back. We are indeed in Fall 1861. I count 4 Union PCs in WV which gives you control. Is this correct? if not your SW will have to be adjusted. If all is now as it should be we can proceed to draw cards for Fall 1861.
70 9/14/2018 7:32:00 AM Fall 1861 Union Message I'm not sure we are in Summer 1862. If you look at the discard pile, there are not enough cards there for the 1st three turns. There are 9 cards in my discard pile which would match up with Spring 1861(4 cards) and Summer 1861(5 cards). So I think we are starting Fall 1861. What do you show in your discard pile?

The first action in the last file I sent you contains my note on the ANV. It started the attrition phase with 7SP. You indicated it loses 1SP when in effect it should lose 2SP. See your CSA attrition log file reflects this. I made an adjustment reducing the ANV by 1SP to correct the situation.
69 9/13/2018 7:39:00 PM Fall 1861 Confederate Message I cannot find your note regarding ANV attrition. also, in searching the ACT journal it appears that we should be starting Spring of 1862, not fall 1861, so there should be reinforcements. I will hold of on exercising you latest game file until we have this sorted out.
