81 8/2/2019 6:07:00 PM Summer 1861 Union Message I'll just assume you took an extra unit from Hanover since you would otherwise lose that unit to attrition anyway between turns.

3* (10=6+4) Confederates

Confederates win, losing 2 units while wiping out the Union. Because the Confederates rolled a 10, there is a chance of a casualty on the Union side on a "1" (Confederates were immune due to the force ratio.)

However we've never played it that way (and I know I've often taken reinforcements directly into Pensacola), so we will wait until next game before putting that restriction on Pensacola.
41 7/26/2019 10:00:00 AM Spring 1861 Union Message Norfolk VA is closed as a Blockade Port due to the Union controlling Fort Monroe. Instead, you'll have place the reinforcement in either Morehead City, Wilmington, or Fort Fisher.

Both sides are eliminated. However according to Rule 7.34 below:

WHEN BOTH SIDES ARE ELIMINATED:
"In case of ties involving no asterisk, both sides retain 1 SP, but the attacker is the loser."

This means Johnston +1 SP retreat from the battle back to Frederick and the Union's 1 SP remains in DC.

The Union wins the battle, losing 1 unit to the Confederates losing 2 units and thereby being eliminated.

The Confederate fort is captured causing the Confederates to lose 1 SW (95-) and the Union to gain 1 SW (104+). Richmond falls, causing the Confederates to lose 15 SW (down to 80-).

Note the Resource Space is not destroyed yet. The Union must place a PC marker in Richmond in order to destroy it.

Confederates' turn.

It is a Medium Battle (5 SPs Union vs 1 SP Confederates) with a +5drm Union (+1 leader, +4 force ratio) versus +4drm Confederates (+2 fort, +2 opponent out of supply).

1 (4=1+3) Confederates

The Union wins, losing 1 unit compared to the Confederates losing 2 units. Beauregard goes to the Turn Track.

Because the Confederate fort was destroyed, the Confederates lose 1 SW point and another 3 SW for changing fortunes (down to 96-) and the Union gains 1 SW point and another 2 SW for changing fortunes (up to 103+).

The Union can continue moving because of its force ratio advantage (with 5 movement points remaining).

Confederates are wiped out and the Union loses a unit and the Union can keep going.
