20 2/19/2020 1:32:00 AM Spring 1861 Confederate Message All spaces in West Virginny are Yank controlled.
19 2/19/2020 1:31:00 AM Spring 1861 Confederate Message Good catch Sven! Nope, didn't include Yanks capturing West Virginny...so here is the corrected end of the turn stuff...
Spring 1861 end of turn

CSA PCs: Frederick, Baltimore, Annapolis
Yank PCs: none seen

State control & Raids:
-5 for the Yanks from 103+ to 95- for the Rebs raidin Maryland
+5 for the Rebs from 100+ to 105+
Best to do the West Virginny for Yanks AFTER the Raid...can calculate the result of Raids & State control to match what is best for your side...so,
+5SW for the Yanks from 95- to 102+

Emancy (NOT in play) & War Wieriness: n/a

Attrition:
USA
-1 for AoP - n3, and another for OOS to n2
CSA
none seen

Blockade - 0
Amphib - 0

Now we should be ready for your reinforcements...
(don't forget...-4 for the East for no RR connection with WDC & -1 from either of the 3 areas of reinforcements for the Reb capture of capitol of Maryland...your choice. The SPs in the East may NOT go to WDC. Also, since WDC is OOS, may not strat move into WDC...just to keep in mind what you might want to plan for your strats and next card pull. Apologize, if you already know all this stuff...don't want you to get caught unawares.
