Confederate immediately receives three SPs in any open Blockade Runner Port, no more than one SP per port, but more than one SP per Blockade Zone is permitted. If insufficient ports are available, the excess SPs are lost.

71 7/14/2019 3:34:00 AM Fall 1861 Union Message Und hier die modifizierte Regel, die sich auf Strategic movement bezieht:
... As a special case an Army can receive a SP if it is in supply and has an LOC of friendly or neutral spaces directly to the location of the SP (neutral RR connections are eligible in this situation). This movement can include both naval and overland strategic movement. Each SP moved into an Army counts against the player’s strategic movement limit, but no more than 3 SPs total can be moved in this manner by each player.
70 7/14/2019 3:32:00 AM Fall 1861 Union Message In den Living Rules gibt es eine optionale Regel, die mehr Wert auf Railroad LOCs legt. Mark Herman schreibt dazu:

DESIGNER’S NOTE: One of the difficulties when designing an American Civil War game is how to handle logistics. At the begin- ning of the war political constraints and conventional wisdom enforced a secure line of communications (hereafter LOC) mindset. The common practice, especially with most Union generals, cre- ated self imposed restrictions on maneuvering away from secure LOCs. As the war progressed the political thinking moved toward a harsher war doctrine coupled with early war operational experi- ence changed senior thinking on the efficacy of an army foraging in enemy territory. The four leading thinkers in this area were Lee, Jackson, Grant, and Sherman. Based on this view I designed the logistic system to reflect this late war reality and used the strategy ratings of generals to reflect their LOC risk taking behavior.
One of the consequences of these historical assumptions is at times players do not use or reflect on the locations of railroads as much as they should. Although the railroads are key to strategic movement and logistics in the game, their impact on maneuver diminished over the course of the war (1864 rules) as armies learned through experi- ence what they really needed to operate in the field. The design takes these factors into consideration. This variant is intended to place a bit more restriction on early war operations that were more tied to the railroads that diminished over the course of the war.
PLAY NOTE: These rules modifications do not alter how the game is played or known successful strategies. The main impact of this variant is the Trans-Mississippi, Cumberland Gap, and West Vir- ginia become more logistic intensive to traverse or encamp on with large forces due to attrition. The secondary impact of these rules is armies that want to operate in enemy territory will need to re- establish a railroad or naval LOC to remain viable. The corollary of this is CSA raiding and deep army incursions still remain viable, but will require better planning and positioning.

47 7/3/2019 1:30:00 AM Summer 1861 Confederate Play Strategy card as Operations #82: 3 / Foreign Intervention - Reshuffle/Remove
Either player can play this card as an EC when Confederate SW is 110+. If this is the last card in a players hand or the second to last and the player holds the Emancipation Proclamation, if the condition is met, it must be played as an EC, if not it can be played as an OC. EFFECTS: 1. Union Blockade reduced by one (cannot become greater than 4 for the remainder of the game). 2. Union -2 SP Reinforcements for the remainder of the game (Union choice). 3. Union SW reduced by 10. Remove from deck if event is played. If card is played as an OC or discarded re-shuffle deck at end of the Strategy Phase.

39 6/30/2019 8:07:00 AM Summer 1861 Union Message +4 für die CSA ist richtig.

für die USA ist folgende Rechnung korrekt:

a) McDowell hat 0, da er aufgrund fehlender Kavallerie um 2 reduziert wird (auf ein Minimum von 0)
b) McDowell darf einen seiner untergebenen Generäle mitzählen, also +2
c) Fort +2

Insgesamt haben wir also beide ein +4

36 6/28/2019 6:38:00 PM Summer 1861 Confederate Play Strategy card as Operations #75: 2 / Western Concentration Block
Confederate player can either remove or demote an army commander in any state except Virginia, North Carolina, South Carolina, or Florida for no political cost. OR Confederate Player may move 5 SPs using Strategic Movement (rail connections only) to the same space with a Confederate General who is then activated and must attempt to enter a space with at least one or more Union SPs or fort. If a general casualty occurs in a battle caused by this card, the Commanding General is eligible, this is an exception to the rules. See 4.5 Remove from deck if event is played.

24 6/24/2019 5:36:00 PM Summer 1861 Confederate Message Sorry, da habe ich wohl beim Aufstellen zu viel durcheinander entschieden. Hier die Korrektur (hoffentlich regelkonform):

- Der in Fort Fisher NC geht nach Morehead City NC
- Der in Fort Pulaski GA geht nach Savannah
- Der in Forts St. Philip/Jackson geht nach Sabine City TX

Union may activate any Union army within 4 spaces of Richmond, VA. The army must enter Richmond or move as close to Richmond as possible, but may convert spaces to maintain an LOC. All SPs associated with the army must be moved (no dropping off SPs), except 1 SP may be left if the Army began its movement from a fort (if last SP, move completed). If played by the Confederate, he draws a card from the Union hand which is discarded, and the Union player follows the instructions of this card as his next card play.

Played prior to a battle against an army possessing one or more cavalry brigades. The ONLY effects are the Army’s Commanding General’s battle rating (offense or defense) is immediately reduced by 2 and no Cavalry general’s battle ratings may be used in the battle. The effects end at the conclusion of the battle. Cavalry generals are not available for casualty determination. OR: Place one PC marker in any space within four spaces (includes river connections) of a single cavalry brigade. The four space range many not be traced through Northeast Alabama. The space may not contain an enemy SP or fort, but may contain an Ironclad or Torpedoes.
