272 8/5/2019 11:10:00 PM Turn 2 USA Message Confederates have a Grand plan in operation which still needs to be accepted.

0. Move into Maryland, encourage the inhabitants of the state to succede, damage infrastructure useful for the Union and demoralize the Army of the Potomac.
1. DH Hill is to occupy Frederick, and then entrench to cover the two railroad bridges.
2. Jackson is to move to the Patapsco river bridge, destoy it and also the depot and stay in communication with Mt Airey.
3. Stuart is to raid along the patapsco river and damage Any railroads also destroy the depots at Mount Airy, New Windsor and Elliot Mills. Return to screen Jackson and stay in communication with Mount Airy.
4. Longstreet is to move to Mt Airy and await the return of Jackson and Stuart, maintaining contact with DH HILL. Mumford is to raid Rockville and screen netween ANV & Washington.
5. Walker is to destroy the Aquaduct and then move to join DH HILL at Frederick.

The Union have no grand plan as yet and are in the Unplanned stage. They have to muster their Army, attttempt to form 2-4 wings and attach units belonging to the strategic reserve such as III, V & XIth Corps.

Apart from being granted to a formation to activate normally, Army commander's APs can be used to muster or create a formation at 1 AP, create a new plan (3 APs), end a current plan (2 APs) order a unit or formation to entrench, permit rail movement but cannot detach units from the strategic reserve without rolling to attempt this (1 AP).
An Army Commander may have 0 APs but if a negative result happens from an initiative roll, this caused # number of days of delay or confusion.
APs can be used within 3 hexes of the commander or for the Union within 8 hexes of Washington.
In addition it costs 1 AP for the AP to move one bound.

Running a blog of this, which will inclide further details, photos, corrections and a rendition of the strategic movement rules for GCACW - Basically a three column table depending on whether there is a grand plan in operation or not and also for strategic issues.
271 7/13/2019 10:02:00 PM Turn 2 USA Message McClellan's grand asault definitely unhinged the Confederate line.
Historically, it was Isaac Bush Richardson who nearly won the battle for the Union outflanking the famous sunken lane...Longstreet / DH Hill seemingly saved the day for the Rebs..

Quite an epic scenario, hope you get a break in the next stage!


270 7/13/2019 9:22:00 PM Turn 2 CSA Message That's good enough Al, I'll concede here. I don't see any likelihood the Rebs are going to come back at this point. Well played, and good luck in the next round.
269 7/13/2019 7:33:00 PM Turn 2 USA Message Fine (point D), might have effected the rout, but assuming Stonewall heads southwards to Ferry Hill (W2214), that Potamac river bend - W2312-3, will cost 1 SP per unit anyway.

A retreat to W2008 saves some losses, bit unorthodox but back to you to sort that out and next initiative roll..

(Lee, sitting in Sharpsburg is in the firing line!)
268 7/13/2019 3:48:00 PM Turn 2 CSA Message That all looks correct except I believe the Flank is only +3. It starts at +4 but subtracts 1 for the hex across the river.

That would produce a final result of +4 for 1fa/1DR.
