269 4/3/2020 4:24:00 AM Fall 1862 Union Message Actually Union players executing all their end of turn actions and drawing their cards without waiting the CSA player is dominant tournament practice to speed up game play.

Union 115(+) / Confederacy 87(-)

You only have 1 SP in Falmouth; I removed 1 in log 227. Also, you ended the turn with 2 in Memphis (log 253), so if you rail in 2, that's 4 not 3.
