117 11/29/2018 6:47:00 AM Fall 1861 Moderator Message EP revised ruling:
The Emancipation Proclamation event requires that the Union wins a medium or large battle. Two exceptions are overruns (5.72) and Army Amphibious Assault (6.15). The Design Note under 5.72 is in the context of overrun only, where any size force overrunning a fort would trigger EP.

* An amphibious assault on an ungarrisoned fort will not trigger EP except in the rare case where an Union Army wins the AA and 6 SP are involved.

** An ungarrisoned coastal fort has 0 SP. If you were to capture it in a Small battle, this would NOT trigger EP.
116 11/28/2018 5:28:00 PM Fall 1861 Union Play Strategy card as Operations #14: 3 / Red River Campaign
May not be discarded by the Union. Union must use this card as an OC. If at the conclusion of movement, a Union SP is not on or adjacent to Grand Ecore, LA, then the Union loses 5 SW points. If a Union SP is in one of the objective spaces then a Union PC marker can immediately be placed to convert the space or spaces. Remove from deck if Union plays card.

I'm eliminated and you lose 3, reduced to 2 due to 7.31 C): "Neither side can inflict casualties in excess of twice its own strength." The ANV returns to Frederick.

I'd like to take a minute and clarify what each of us has in that area before I continue, especially what's in the ANV.

Not necessarily a mistake. I needed a 3-OPs or campaign card to even reach the forts. Fortunately (for me), I've drawn *six* 3-OPs cards so far including two Minor Campaigns. I've played a few games as the Union where I couldn't get a single 3-OPs in the first four turns. So call it more "luck of the draw" rather than bad play.
