Message from Confederate:
J Johnston + 3 in Memphis TN:

1-5) Attack USA SP in Jackson MS

Will be USA victory with Johnston losing 1 SP, but no fort or GO for US so Johnston keeps moving with USA eliminated.

Sorry to have to do this now, but there was no way Smith wins the battle in Little Rock and forces a retreat, so I would have tried an avoid battle.

Smith needs a 1 to avoid.
449 1/22/2020 11:16:00 AM Fall 1864 Union Message Activate Hooker and 4 in Cairo
1-6 Ironton, Greenville, New Madrid, Elizabeth and attack Smith in Little Rock. DR next

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.

Message from Confederate:
It really hurt losing an extra SP when Reynolds rolled a 6 in his battle my last turn.

AoW (2-1):

1) Little Rock (pu1, n3-1 and 1 in LR)
2-4) Convert Shreveport
5) Attack SP in Marshall TX.

Small battle and both sides OOS. Result is a USA victory 1*-1 with USA SP in a resource space. USA SP is destroyed and, since there is no fort or general present, AoW (2-1) may continue moving.

6) Shreveport and stop.
445 1/19/2020 4:11:00 PM Fall 1864 Confederate Message I was acepting risk and hoping that you would not realize that ... I thought I was good when you made the move into Little Rock.

Fort P-J switches to USA, CSA -1 SW and USA +1 SW (for a CSA battle win ... awesome).

USA 96(+) / CSA 39(-)

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.

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.

Note for next turn: Both Gulf BR zones are closed. Since CSA forces in TX are OOS no CSA reinforcement can go there; same is true for AR as Little Rock is OOS (8.2 under Ultimate supply sources for the Confederacy & 10.43). I also believe that available spaces in LA are OOS due to USA PCs blocking E of the MS river and as LA spaces W of the MS river cannot be in supply by TX and AR.
That being said, I believe you only have 8 states that can receive reinforcements, so one is lost. I was trying to isolate TX, then realized AR would be impacted. I just figured the impact on LA when doing the EOT.

I cannot avoid battle. Standing still to be hit by you makes no sense.

Only choice is to attempt and intercept and go down fighting. Good on 1-5

USA 3* to CSA 3; however, with Forrest's intercept it was going to be a CSA win being Richmond being a resource center.

AoTN n3-1 falls back to Hanover. Forrest and 1 infantry division remain in Richmond as 3 divisions were destroyed.

GO casualty (for Forrest) on a 1.

AoTN will lose a GO on a roll of 1-3

353 9/29/2019 9:57:00 PM Spring 1864 Confederate Play Strategy card as Event #3: 1 / Forward to Richmond
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.

Message from Confederate:
Whatever nefarious card you are holding for your last play, please discard it and play this one instead.
