Which reb general fell during the battle for Culpepper?
72 11/26/2018 1:16:00 PM Fall 1861 Confederate Message In the Battle for Culpepper...
Rebs attacking with 6SPs is 3x than Yanks with 2SPs, so no leader cas for the Rebs...
Also, there would be another +2force mod for the Rebs attack which makes no dif on the outcome...

Rebs continue (n5) in Culpepper by converting the space back to Rebeldom and moving back to Manassas...your options?
71 11/26/2018 12:04:00 AM Fall 1861 Union Message Burnside gets away, but one general on the Rebel side takes a bullet. You can roll it, then continue.

43 11/16/2018 9:43:00 PM Summer 1861 Confederate Message Between Cairo & STL, there are a total 8SPs...so you could have 6SPs with Rosey in Paducah and then 2 in Cairo...if you wish...

Is that what you want to do?
42 11/16/2018 10:34:00 AM Summer 1861 Union Message You're right. I overloaded Fremont going from Cairo to Paducah. There should be 2SP in Cairo and 5SP with Rosy and Fremont in Paducah.
As I recall , we are playing with the optional logistics rules.
41 11/16/2018 2:02:00 AM Summer 1861 Confederate Message I have forgotten...are we playing with the Logistics rules?

If we are NOT, then you could get all 8SPs to Paducah, by taking 4SPs from Cairo to Paducah, then back to Cairo to p/u the remaining 2SPs & Rosey...and end in Paducah with total of 8SPs w Rosey.
40 11/16/2018 1:57:00 AM Summer 1861 Confederate Message Your move is considered a "Corps" move...as such you may only move total of 6SPs...leave 1 behind in Cairo?

Or do another type of move?

32 11/13/2018 2:22:00 PM Summer 1861 Confederate Message Yes, for Stuart...

When selecting Gens for the placement...the Obverse side of Cav Gens is obvious...it is marked as Cav. There is no randomness involved. the Others are NOT marked as cav...so randomness required.

I am cornfused by your list of the Gens & locations for placement. Understoold that your die rolls represented the die rolls for each Gen...then the number dictates the location by your requirements.

You see how I arrived at my list? Specificivity is important. You tell me where the lads are, but need to be more clear in the next multiple placement.
31 11/13/2018 1:40:00 AM Summer 1861 Union Message Can Stuart be assigned arbitrarily, not randomly?
