Maximum APs which can be amassed or held over is 6.

Strat points need only be tallied once per day, either from the first or second SM die rolls with a minimum of one roll.

In addition a player may use accrued APs to lower the die roll and take initiative. An Army commander moving on friendly territory can move for 0 APs as long as they have accrued a positive amount.

Maryland Control Phase

NOTE: If units are in an unsupplied state they remain on their exhausted sides. Confederate rolls are +1 in this case or make a roll from F0=>F1 without mods.
Cav always roll without extra modifiers but instead of losses they rout as normal and increase fatigue to F4.
An exhausted unit cannot recover both fatigue and disorder, exhaustion and Demoralisation, they are recovered one stage at a time in the above order.
3 8/5/2019 1:26:00 AM Turn 1 Confederate Message Confederates have a Grand plan in operation which still needs to be accepted.
0. Move into Maryland, encourage the inhabitants of the state to succede, damage infrastructure useful for the Union and demoralize the Army of the Potomac.

1. DH Hill is to occupy Frederick, and cover the two railroad bridges.
2. Jackson is to move to the Patapsco river bridge, destoy it and also the depot and stay in communication with Mt Airey.
3. Stuart is to raid along the patapsco river and damage Any railroads also destroy the depots at Mount Airy, New Windsor and Elliot Mills. Return to screen Jackson and stay in communication with Mount Airy.
4. Longstreet is to move to Mt Airey and await the return of Jackson and Stuart, maintaining contact with DH HILL. Mumford is to raid Rockville and screen netween ANV & Washington.
5. Walker is to destroy the Aquaduct and then move to join DH HILL at Frederick.

The Union have no grand plan and are in the Unplanned stage. They have to muster their Army, form 2-4 wings and attach units belonging to the strategic reserve such as III, V & XIth Corps.

Apart from being granted to a formation to activate normally, Army commander's APs can be used to muster or create a formation at 1 AP, create a new plan (3 APs), end a current plan (2 APs) order a unit or formation to entrench, permit rail movement but cannot detach units from the strategic reserve without rolling to attempt this (1 AP).
An Army Commander may have 0 APs but if a negative result happens from an initiative roll, this caused # number of days of delay or confusion.
APs can be used within 3 hexes of the commander or for the Union within 8 hexes of Washington.
In addition it costs 1 AP for the AP to move one bound.

Running a blog of this, which will inclide further details, photos, corrections and a rendition of the strategic movement rules for GCACW - Basically a three column table depending on whether there is a grand plan in operation or not and also for strategic issues.
