39 4/6/2019 3:52:00 PM Summer 1861 Confederate Message Hey Andy,
Pope in Bowling Green cannot directly attack Nashville thru either Clarksville or Bowling Green. He can move around and attack thru Murfreesboro, but would be out of supply.
You could also attack using a naval move from Cairo, but that would require ďrunning the gunsĒ at Dover. Even with one of those special cards that looks like a tough slog!
