Well, not for long. It's not called the 'Show Me' state for nothin'. In an attempt at revenge,

The Union player may remove or demote one Union general for no SW cost. The cost for promoting a general with a lower political value still applies. OR remove ANY Union non-commanding general (even second in commands) from the game.

Message from Union:
Dang Missouri Rebels...they are takin over the boarder state!

Reynolds gets the call...much to Lincoln's chagrin...was hoping to retire Mr. Pope in favor of Reynolds...but =>

405 3/27/2020 12:03:00 AM Summer 1863 Union Play Strategy card as Operations #64: 1 / USS Kearsarge sinks USS Alabama
Union SW increased by one.

Message from Union:
OK, saw your note after I sent my last msg...VanDorn in Shreveport.

Grant leaves 2SP in Manassas (n4) & moves to Culpepper (p/u 6SPs & Meade and drops Hooker - Culpepper n2 with Hooker & AoPot n10), then moves back to Manassas, then to Aquia Creek (converts), then to Fredericksburg (drops 2SPs - AoPot n8), then ends back in Manassas (p/u 2 - n10).
404 3/26/2020 11:48:00 PM Summer 1863 Union Message Nuttin in the rules specifically identify what VanDorn was up to...let's see if we can figure this out.
VanDorn's move from Camden to Shreveport was a Corps move for 2MPs...then if he continues (as a Corps even tho alone):
2MPs back to Camden
2MPs to Little Rock
1MP to Eliz
1MP to Madison

That's total of 8MPs.

What has got me stumped is with VanDorn movin by himself, he would have 10MPs.

If we hold that VanDorn initiated the move as a Corps, he must continue moving as a Corps.

Whatcha think, bud?

403 3/26/2020 11:48:00 PM Summer 1863 Confederate Message Yes, I have messed up. van Dorn can only get to Elizabeth, AR or Grenada, MS because of the 2 MP requirement on the road lines. Missed that. I was forgetting the RR connection. So, van Dorn sits in Sheveport. Your turn.
402 3/26/2020 11:31:00 PM Summer 1863 Confederate Message ? Have I counted road movement points incorrectly? By my count it is just 8MPs. I am still trying to figure out this new movement rules.
401 3/26/2020 11:25:00 PM Summer 1863 Union Message Yep, n6 in Paducah....missed that too!

Very interesting move by VanDorn...would take 2MPs for VanDorn to move to Shreveport from Camden...then moving by himself to Memphis...then moving the 2SPs from there is a Corps move which VanDorn would have already used up the 8MPs...so will do some research and see if there is a resolution...be back to ya...
400 3/26/2020 9:32:00 PM Summer 1863 Confederate Message I knew there was more than one SP in Paducah. See #350. 6SPs in Paducah.
399 3/26/2020 1:31:00 PM Summer 1863 Confederate Message Hokay, [Southern for Okay], van Dorn leaves the SP in Sheveport and moves up to Memphis, p/u the 2 SPs there, and ends his move in Columbus, KY n4
398 3/26/2020 4:31:00 AM Summer 1863 Union Message LOL, Yanks win!

I only have 1SP in Paducah...can you find where you put 2 there to make n6 when you retreat back to that location?
393 3/26/2020 12:25:00 AM Summer 1863 Confederate Message Right you are. My bad. End of move, yes?
392 3/25/2020 11:31:00 PM Summer 1863 Union Message Cost to move from Ironton to Cairo would only cost 1MP since Ironton is a rail head space and Cairo is next to it...yes?
391 3/25/2020 5:36:00 PM Summer 1863 Confederate Message Oops. I am not sure that AoM can reach Cairo. I count

Union may make a naval move with up to three SPs plus one general. If an amphibious assault occurs, you receive an additional +2 DRM. Add +2DRM to any Running the Guns die roll.

Message from Confederate:
This is annoying. van Dorn with 3SPs moves down to Sheveport and attacks dem yankee interlopers.

382 3/24/2020 2:42:00 AM Summer 1863 Union Play Strategy card as Event #14: 3 / Red River Campaign
May not be discarded by the Union. Union must use this card as an OC. If at the conclusion of movement, a Union SP is not on or adjacent to Grand Ecore, LA, then the Union loses 5 SW points. If a Union SP is in one of the objective spaces then a Union PC marker can immediately be placed to convert the space or spaces. Remove from deck if Union plays card.

Message from Union:
Nope, it is MY card play...LOL

2SPs will attempt to "run the guns" at Columbus to establish a base at Shreveport...

Would you believe, this is the VERY first time that I have ever attempted this? Never in any game have I executed this manuever! Let's see how this goes...
381 3/24/2020 2:32:00 AM Summer 1863 Union Message Aha, yes....I see that now...yes correct AoMiss n4.

Thanks for clearifying...didn't have it down to n5 before that last card play...now my map is up-dated.

Your card play, SUH! :-)
380 3/23/2020 8:20:00 PM Summer 1863 Confederate Message Yes, but AoM [which is the army I meant--sorry] is/was at n5 also by #346, so it is now at n4.
379 3/23/2020 8:04:00 PM Summer 1863 Union Message mag 346 has AoWest w n5...you agree?
378 3/23/2020 6:08:00 PM Summer 1863 Confederate Message I just realized that AoW only had 5 SPs at the start of the season, so now has 4SPs.
377 3/23/2020 5:06:00 PM Summer 1863 Confederate Play Strategy card as Event #37: 2 / Confederate Scientist
