138 8/21/2019 6:07:00 PM Spring 1862 Union Message I believe Big Bertha makes it a corps move??
137 8/21/2019 6:32:00 AM Spring 1862 Confederate Message There is a bit of a problem with your move, which I'm parsing as a division move (no leader)..

Division moves can only move 5 spaces (+2 if all friendly rail, which you can do by a different route), but that will still only get you as far as Harrisburg..

Did you want to change your move?
136 8/21/2019 6:31:00 AM Spring 1862 Confederate Message The Leader thing takes management, or you just suffer -2 SW to keep the tempo up.. :)

Agreed that the names of the Armies could be adjusted, especially having 2 Armies of Tennessee.. :)

Okay Burnside and 4 SP to Wheeling.

Was tempted to get creative and go to Grafton to seal your lads off but couldn't figure if that would have done anything effective in the long run so.... charge! :-)

85 6/13/2019 7:24:00 AM Fall 1861 Confederate Message Columbus, KY is empty...

(I needed to have some troops on a rail, and I didn't have it, which is why most of my troops when to AoNV this turn. The 1 SP I did have on the rail net, went to Dover, which is more important than Columbus.. :)
84 6/12/2019 3:53:00 PM Fall 1861 Union Message - Hi Geoff,
- Thanks, good point on the interceptions!
- I'll try and make it easier with the log files, guess I'm just to used to seeing the graphics play out. :-)
- Okay 3 SP's lost
- Lose 3 from Jackson OH
- Down to Halleck and 1 SP
- Humm... meant to ask this earlier since it seems odd to me.

Medium battle of Manassas, VA

1st die: USA +1 for leader
2nd die: CSA +5 for leaders
80 6/11/2019 7:57:00 PM Fall 1861 Confederate Message Just to make sure I'm parsing your log file correctly, you dropped Burnside off in Baltimore (with 1 SP that started there), picked up 4 SPs in WDC (n10) and then attacked Manassas from Frederick.

Just as a warning, with Frederick empty, I can try to intercept you when you return... However, since all you have to do to stop that is drop 1 SP initially, and pick it up again on your return (which has no net impact on your move), we'll just assume you did that...

A lesson for future moves... :)

67 6/7/2019 7:39:00 AM Summer 1861 Confederate Message Ok, agreed on Pope, sometimes I get a bit confused by the logfile descriptions.

So Pope -> TT, and 1 SP -> AoP, n6 (from Somerset)
66 6/5/2019 5:16:00 PM Summer 1861 Union Message Jeff> - Hi Geoff,
- I believe Pope was in Lebanon when you stormed through there! :-)
- Message 55
- Believe he went to the track when the SP was wiped out?
- Interesting on the army, learned something new.... again. :-)
- Actually think it might be better for me to pull Polk out so he is in the mix for when you reassign?
- We shall see if that's wise or not. :-)
* Union moves Polk moves Army of Northern Virginia: Other Generals -> offboard *
- Regards, Jeff

65 6/5/2019 7:23:00 AM Summer 1861 Confederate Message Two issues..

1) When AoNV was reduced to 2 SPs, I had 6 leaders and could only support 5. You may choose one of Bragg, Smith, Polk, ASJ to go to my TT.

2) I don't think you can move the SP from Somerset, KY => AoP, since it still has a leader (Pope) and you can't leave him without troops to command deliberately.

Let me know if you wanted to change your SR as a result.
64 6/4/2019 2:31:00 PM Summer 1861 Union Message - Grrr...5 + 4 for a 9 I take 2 hits as well.... not a resource space so I believe I have to retreat with the * there
