16 12/8/2018 12:37:00 PM Spring 1861 Union Message There is some attrition. Manassas VA with 3SP loses 1, so now 2SP there. Perhaps the arrival of Polk and J. Johnston led to some disenchantment among the enlisted me.

Message from Confederate:
Leader Reorganization:

Price: From Fayetteville, AR to Columbus, KY
Polk: From Memphis, TN to Manassas, VA
Johnston: From Winchester, VA to Manassas, VA

Was saving this card to cancel the 3 OP card you didn't have. I had a similar fate in my other game as the Union with no 3's as well but at least I had a card to allow a corps move with SP so was able to move a bit.
