525 3/3/2020 12:12:00 PM Spring 1865 Union Message No sense playing further. Even with much manpower and that I could destroy the AoNV within Richmond, I cannot enter as you would have automatic 3 to my 3* in the final battle. Close but no cigar.

I concede to my well organized opponent who has often won with the CSA.

There are 7 GOs in the Army of 2. There can only be 3 more than the number of SPs, so 5 is the max.

I am not sure why, but I get it confused with forces in resource spaces and who wins, my best guess:

CSA wins (?) 1 to 1* as in resource space, but is eliminated. 7.33 B winner eliminated and had a GO, the attacker occupies the space, but his movement ends.

IF USA won 1* to 1 then Hooker could move further.

Will go with first case so Hooker and 3 are must stay in Little Rock and Smith goes to the game track.

USA PC in Fort P-J and remove the CSS Tennessee.
444 1/18/2020 10:38:00 AM Fall 1864 Union Message USA loses the battle on the 1 to 1 tie. IAW 6.42 Pope and 2 return to Fort Gadsen.

However, the CSA loss of its SP means Fort St. P/J is ungarrisoned. I think 6.84 is in play now as New Orleans is Union-controlled and with the forts not being garrisoned, I should be able to put a Union PC marker on it.

That would have a number of effects as a result: removal of the ironclad, loss of SW for the fort, but more importantly Union Naval control would be all of the MS River up to the CSA fort in Memphis. Lastly, CSA forces W of the MS would be OOS.

Given all the above, I ask for you to confirm my thoughts and then I will wrap up my play with all the impacts and send a fresh map.

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.

Message from Union:
Should have tried this either for the 1st or 2nd move. Just shows how limited thinking your opponent is.

Pope and 3 Fort Gadsen to AA Forts St F/J. Rolling next.

Union plays card at beginning of a battle (or Amphibious Assault) that has a Confederate fort present and cancels Confederate fort die roll modifier in the battle. Remove from deck if event is played. Draw a strategy card.

Message from Confederate:
Fort in Memphis TN. All US forces in MS, LA, AR, and TX are now OOS except the lone SP in Nacogdoches TX.
431 1/15/2020 8:35:00 AM Fall 1864 Union Message Pemberton survives making things a little different.

An ungarrisoned fort is 0 SPs, so without losing the battle or being killed, Pemberton remains with the home guard in Little Rock.

Message from Union:
CSA wins 2 to 1*.

Scofield n2 must retreat to Camden and lose 1 more n1 (as Camden is not a USA PC even with SP there) and joins the SP there for a total of 2.
Question: If fighting in Camden, a USA force would be in supply from Shreveport I think...so does Scofield lose an additional SP on the retreat? I think 7.61 #5 would apply. I took one off just in case).

CSA lone division is destroyed.

Pemberton is lost on a 1-3. I will roll for him and then make final comment.
