123 1/11/2020 6:58:00 PM Fall 1861 Union Message Yep, misread my chart. USA started last turn at 113+, added 5 for WV (118+), and lost 8 for war weariness (110+).
122 1/11/2020 6:54:00 PM Fall 1861 Union Message Something's wrong with USA SW. Hang on.

Parkersburg, Weston, Charleston, Franklin & Lewisburg WV go USA.

MO joins CSA, which means CSA also takes control of Jefferson City. St. Louis remains USA because of the SP and fort. CSA SW +10+2=113+. NOTE: you get an extra SP during reinforcements because you control MO.

WV goes USA. CSA SW -5-3=105-. USA SW+5=109.

105 12/5/2019 7:31:00 PM Fall 1861 Union Play Strategy card as Operations #41: 2 / Gov. Isham Harris, Tennessee Confederate
Confederate immediately places two SPs in any friendly controlled space in Tennessee with a LOC (both SPs are placed in the same space). SPs may not be placed in Pro-Union spaces or one occupied by Union SPs or a fort.

Message from Union:
Union fort in Cairo IL.
104 12/5/2019 7:28:00 PM Fall 1861 Union Message Weston is not really open, since you already control WV, you control anyplace I didn't have forces at the time or take since. But it's OK, there's nothing wrong with spending 2 OPs to gain a key PC marker (like in MO).
103 12/4/2019 9:49:00 PM Fall 1861 Confederate Message Weston WV is open correct ?

I'll play the 2nd one there

98 12/2/2019 7:54:00 PM Fall 1861 Union Message It appears you did. However, it does not change the result of the battle. I was +1 instead of +5, which is a 7. So my result is still 1*, and you're result is still 1. You lose your SP, and I lose 1 SP but win the battle. And the rest of my move is the same.
97 11/18/2019 8:05:00 PM Fall 1861 Confederate Message I had 1SP at Columbus TN. ?
96 11/16/2019 7:09:00 PM Fall 1861 Union Message Buell loses 1, now at 1SP.

75 11/7/2019 6:04:00 PM Fall 1861 Union Message Pope continues to Grafton and attacks the 1SP in Franklin.
74 11/7/2019 6:01:00 PM Fall 1861 Union Message Use of rivers is asymmetrical in this game.
The Union can cross anywhere there is no CSA fort. Control is irrelevant except for allowing the fort to be built. Right now I could cross at Vicksburg; there is no CSA fort there.
The CSA can cross only where there is a CSA fort, or at any river space blocked from Union control by two CSA forts. This includes the Coastal forts. So you can cross anywhere between New Orleans and Columbus KY right now.
You can also cross at Clarksville TN.
You cannot cross at Paducah right now, because although you have two forts, Union control of the rivers is still coming in through the Ohio, which isn't blocked.
Think of the rivers as pipes. Union control starts on the north edge of the map and from the Gulf of Mexico. The control flows until one of your forts stops it like a clog in the pipe. Union control stops you from crossing, but only the clog (fort) stops me from crossing.

73 11/7/2019 1:41:00 PM Fall 1861 Confederate Message never mind I found Pope

No intercept, but I dont understand how you can cross ?
72 11/7/2019 1:40:00 PM Fall 1861 Confederate Message How can you cross into Parkersburg ? CSA controls that space and you don't have a fort ?

Also I cannot find POPE on my map, could have deleted him by accidnet. How do I get him back ?
71 11/6/2019 7:56:00 PM Fall 1861 Union Play Strategy card as Event #85: 3 / Minor Campaign
Conduct up to two moves or conduct one special army-size naval move. No SP, general, or army marker may be moved twice with the same campaign card. You must move a different force each move.
