215 2/17/2019 6:20:00 PM Turn 11 Jeff Message Init 14: Ricketts barely moves south
Init 15: CSA, Back to you...
214 2/17/2019 4:47:00 PM Turn 11 Rudy Message Init 13: McCausland moves into mountains;
Init 14. USA wins...
213 2/16/2019 7:14:00 AM Turn 11 Jeff Message Init 12: 1st NY Cav, Tibbits move to mountain passes.
Init 13: CSA...
212 2/15/2019 10:21:00 PM Turn 11 Rudy Message Init 12. CSA passes.
211 2/15/2019 10:01:00 PM Turn 11 Jeff Message Move Duffie to Wynkoop, Adjust Rhodes Artillery to 2.

Init 10 - Wynkoop Defeats Jackson
Init 11 - Getty moves West
Init 12 - CSA...
210 2/15/2019 9:33:00 PM Turn 11 Jeff Message You are absolutely right about Duffie. Sorry about that. I will assume that Duffie attached to Wynkoop which would allow for the activation and movement of two units. Then in Init 8, Tibbits would have activated himself. He rolled a 10 for MP so the extra MP from a Cav Div Leader activation was never used. I will move Duffie to Wynkoop.

As far as your attachments is concerned, you usually attach during the Attachment phase which immediately proceeds the start of the action cycle. That said, your method does not change anything, it is only that the two units would continue to exist as separate units until the next turn. One thing I did notice is the combined unit under Rhodes should have an Artillery value of 2. I will adjust at the start of my turn.

If you are not ok with the way I moved Duffie to Wynkoop, just let me know and we I'll replay my moves starting from init 8. Otherwise, I will continue from Init 11.
209 2/15/2019 2:06:00 PM Turn 11 Rudy Message By the way, did Duffie need to move with the first 2 units when they moved?
208 2/15/2019 2:05:00 PM Turn 11 Rudy Message Init 9: Ramseur moves towards Early;
Init 10: Early moves East
Init 11: US ...
207 2/11/2019 9:12:00 PM Turn 11 Jeff Message Yes, Jackson is in quite a pickle. No CSA combat losses to date though, so maybe a nice headline for Northern Morale!

As far as Jackson's Cav retreat is concerned, I think that the "small force" modifier does not apply to Confederate Units - see the last sentence on the modification table. Therefore, Sullivan loses 3 MP and only has 1 left.

Init 6 (cont): Sullivan crosses the creek
Init 7: 1 NY Cav, Wynkoop Cav move south
Init 8: Tibbits Cav moves south
Init 9: CSA, Back to you...

Cav Retreat for Jackson? Otherwise, Sullivan will continue...

So if the end result looks ok, then you donít need to upload your Vassal log In any case, take a quick look and make sure I didnít miss anything. By doing that, I was able to log my init 2 move.

132 10/14/2018 9:52:00 AM Turn 8 Rudy Message I don't know what happened. I seem to have created 2 files. I meant to move Echols and then move Johnson. Init 9 was won by the US.
131 10/14/2018 6:54:00 AM Turn 8 Jeff Message You are correct, Ricketts cannot move into that space. I thought since the space was occupied by friendly forces, a unit using movement by rail could move to or through the ZOC. However, the rules make no exception for such circumstances. Good catch.

I redid the move and with Kenly marching to Frederick Junction instead. If you want to play that I must move Ricketts since I already "touched the piece" let me know and I'll redo again.

I did not re-roll for init 7, since I had already done so and the CSA had won the initiative.
