207 1/22/2020 11:24:00 PM Spring 1862 Union Message Thanks for game. I was very worried when forward to Richmond was played. Without detached cavalry that could have a back breaker.
206 1/22/2020 11:21:00 PM Spring 1862 Confederate Message I don't even know why I attacked into WV. I think I was thinking I'd move afterwards back to Charlottesville. How I was supposed to do that 4 vs 6 is anyone's guess. Trying to do too many things at once is mine rather than only playing a move after thinking it through. Fatal error which I can't roll back.

Game over. Well played and good luck in the future.
