275 6/5/2019 9:20:00 PM Turn 13 Jeff Message Since I assume that there is a high probability that you will pass on init 9, I logged some additional moves and placed the log file in the "If CSA Passes" folder. File name is "211icp Turn 13 Init 9 US.vlog".

So, if you do elect to pass on init 9, you can go ahead and open that log file for another batch of moves by me.

In case you did not hear, Ken Lee is organizing another Mason Dixon Online cup. I assume that you would be on the email list, but if not let me know and I’ll forward the email to you.

Enjoy your Memorial Day

You recovery looks good. The only issue is, I think that Gordon who is OOS goes to disorganized. Let me know if you agree, one of can adjust on our next turn.

262 5/5/2019 6:48:00 AM Turn 12 Jeff Message Hi Rudy. I thought that there was a decent chance that you would pass on init 16. Therefore, I made a another set of moves assuming that you passed. I created a new directory called "If CSA Passes" and placed the file there. If you do choose to pass, you can use that file for my next set of moves.

246 4/3/2019 6:01:00 AM Turn 11 Jeff Message Hi Rudy, I have returned from my trip and should be able to log moves on most days again. Note I could not finish the US recovery in one vassal session so there are two vassal logs, 186 and 187 for this set of moves.

242 3/24/2019 12:40:00 PM Turn 11 Jeff Message In the latest vassal log, I forgot to actually move Mulligan. However, I will do so on my next move (or you can move him should McCausland decide to retreat).

228 3/10/2019 11:20:00 PM Turn 11 Rudy Message I corrected Imboden.
Init 125: CSA passes.
227 3/10/2019 8:07:00 PM Turn 11 Jeff Message One thing, during Imboden's EM check, it was a heat turn, so I think there was a +1 DRM and the roll of 5 would be 6. Therefore, I think Imboden should go to D. If you agree, you can change him on you next move.

Init 23: W Sub 4 move to Burton

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...

206 2/10/2019 11:17:00 PM Turn 11 Rudy Message Jackson retreats, but I think his days are numbered.
205 2/9/2019 7:03:00 AM Turn 11 Jeff Message Init 6: Sullivan moves South?

Cav Retreat for Jackson? Otherwise, Sullivan will continue...
204 2/7/2019 10:45:00 PM Turn 11 Rudy Message Init 5; Early gives up on Harper's Ferry.
Init 6: Pass.

203 2/5/2019 6:15:00 PM Turn 11 Jeff Message Init 5: Sullivan moves south

Init 3: CSA...
180 11/8/2018 6:53:00 PM Turn 10 Jeff Message Hi Rudy. Just to keep the game moving, I created an init 1 log file for Johnson’s move and loaded it to the Dropbox folder. So if the end result looks ok, then you don’t need to upload your Vassal log In any case, take a quick look and make sure I didn’t miss anything. By doing that, I was able to log my init 2 move. Let me know if anything doesn’t look right with either move. Good luck with the rescue!!
179 11/8/2018 4:42:00 AM Turn 10 Jeff Message I do not see a vassal log of your last move in the dropbox folder. When you get a chance, can you place it there? Let me know if it is out there and I missed it.
