27 7/21/2019 11:04:00 AM Spring 1861 Confederate Message While things are not optimal for the Yankees, this is a LONG game and the Yanks have multiple options to cause the Rebs a lot of problems. Fear not, you will recover and strike hard.

Thanks for the "heads-up" about your trip. AWESOME, New Zealand? WOW, love to visit...my father was there during WWII and had many fond memories of the place.

Message from Union:
Interception at Baltimore
23 7/21/2019 7:39:00 AM Spring 1861 Union Message Sorry, I miscounted.
So ANV leaves Polk and 1SP at Richmond, goes to Frederick, wins battle losing 1SP, leaves 1SP there and goes back to Manassas?
Then Polk + 1SP goes to Baltimore, subject to possible interception.

22 7/21/2019 2:20:00 AM Spring 1861 Union Message I do not have map. How many spaces from Richmond to Manassas?
I thought it was 5 spaces to get to Frederick. Then 1mp to convert, so no move left for ANV to go back to Manassas.
21 7/21/2019 1:09:00 AM Spring 1861 Confederate Message Oops, doin this w/o looking at map...instead =>

ANV drops 1SP in Frederick (n2) and returns to Manassas. NOW done!

Polk then moves from Richmond thru Manassas, Frederick, to Baltimore...Intercept there?
20 7/21/2019 1:05:00 AM Spring 1861 Confederate Message Rebs take 1SP loss (n3) and scatters the defenders & destroys the fort. ANV continues by converting the space. Done with 1st part.

2nd part:
Polk movss from Richmond with 1SP to Manassas...intercept?
