331 1/18/2019 9:49:00 AM Spring 1864 Union Play Strategy card as Operations #44: 2 / Western Virginia
Place three Union PC markers in any West Virginia space free of Confederate SPs. If the space contains a Confederate PC marker, it is flipped. Remove from deck if event is played.

Message from Union:
No campaign cards for me since Summer 1863 and only 2 "3" cards this turn, total of 5 the last three turns. Awesome. Good mobility with the armies, but my western strategy was unable to be realized due to lack of cards.

AoT (8-0) in Hanover drop 1 (7-0) > Urbanna > Williamsburg (pu McPherson and Stoneman's cav + 5, AoT 13-1 and AoC 6-0) > Hanover (pu1, n14-1) > attack Richmond. You have options.

The Union Blockade Level is increased by one.

Message from Confederate:
Activate AoT 7-1 in Lynchburg. Appomattox; Burkeville; Amelia; and end in Richmond.
329 1/18/2019 9:25:00 AM Spring 1864 Union Message NOTE: In the last Union turn, I erroneously stated that AoC picked up Kilpatrick's cav in Hanover -- I should have said AoC picked up Stonema's cav in Hanover. So Stoneman is in AoC and Kilpatrick is in AoP.

CSA wins 3*-3. AoNV is eliminated and a GO will be kiled on 1-3 DR -- if not killed, all GOs return next turn except Wheeler who returns in Spring 1865. Since there is a fort in Richmond, AoC (12-1) must retreat to Williamsburg and loses a GO on 1-3 DR.

CSA loses -5 SW for loss of the army marker and -3 CoF.

USA 46(-) / CSA 69(-)

Undo that move ... you converted Lynchburg and stopped. No file needed.
