USA result on CSA, +0.
102 2/19/2020 10:15:00 PM Fall 1861 Confederate Message Yes
101 2/19/2020 8:56:00 PM Fall 1861 Union Message Just to be sure there's no misunderstanding: the ANV declined to try the intercept on my last move, and your SP coming up from Morehead C is now attacking my SP in Norfolk, correct?
100 2/19/2020 7:20:00 PM Fall 1861 Confederate Play Strategy card as Operations #56: 1 / CSS Hunley
Place the CSS Hunley marker in any friendly port. Provides a +1 DRM to Confederate during next amphibious assault. Remove Hunley once modifier has been used. No more than one Hunley can be in play at a given time.

Message from Confederate:
1SP Morehead City to Norfolk
99 2/19/2020 11:05:00 AM Fall 1861 Union Play Strategy card as Event #19: 1 / Belmont
Either player may move up to two infantry SPs from the same space as if led by a General. This move is a Corps move and may enter enemy controlled spaces because the SPs are moving as if they are led by a general.

Message from Union:
An alert play: grabbing Columbus was exactly what I had planned for this card. Instead, 2 SP move from AoP (n9):
1. Urbanna, drop 1, n1.
2-5. Norfolk, overrun fort. ANV may try to intercept in W'burg or DB.
98 2/19/2020 7:20:00 AM Fall 1861 Confederate Message Right. So instead I'll move Price and 1SP from Fayetteville to Dover, dropping SP in Columbus.
97 2/18/2020 9:33:00 PM Fall 1861 Union Message Not a legal move: either path between Paducah and Cairo involves a river crossing, and the Union has naval control (6.25)
96 2/18/2020 9:26:00 PM Fall 1861 Confederate Play Strategy card as Operations #49: 3 / CSS Alabama, Commerce Raider
Union SW reduced by two.

Message from Confederate:
Activate A Johnston. Move to Dover, pick up SP, back to Paducah then to Cairo.
Small Battle
CSA: + 1 generals, +2 ratio
USA: +0
95 2/17/2020 10:33:00 AM Fall 1861 Union Play Strategy card as Operations #105: 1 / Detached Cavalry
Played prior to a battle against an army possessing one or more cavalry brigades. The ONLY effects are the Army’s Commanding General’s battle rating (offense or defense) is immediately reduced by 2 and no Cavalry general’s battle ratings may be used in the battle. The effects end at the conclusion of the battle. Cavalry generals are not available for casualty determination. OR: Place one PC marker in any space within four spaces (includes river connections) of a single cavalry brigade. The four space range many not be traced through Northeast Alabama. The space may not contain an enemy SP or fort, but may contain an Ironclad or Torpedoes.

Message from Union:

Fremont to Pittsburgh.
McClellan, Buell to Manassas.

Union immediately gains one SP in any friendly or neutral space in Missouri free of Confederate SPs. Remove from deck if event is played.

Message from Confederate:

93 2/16/2020 1:08:00 PM Fall 1861 Union Play Strategy card as Operations #64: 1 / USS Kearsarge sinks USS Alabama
Union SW increased by one.

Message from Union:
I assume the first SP is going in Morehead C-- New Bern is not a blockade runner port.

Fort in Manassas.
92 2/16/2020 7:27:00 AM Fall 1861 Confederate Play Strategy card as Event #23: 2 / Bermuda Blockade Surge
Confederate immediately receives two SPs in any open Blockade Runner Port, no more than one SP per port, but more than 1SP per Blockade zone is permitted. If insufficient ports are available, the excess SPs are lost.

Message from Confederate:
New Bern and Wilmington
91 2/15/2020 11:46:00 PM Fall 1861 Union Play Strategy card as Operations #65: 1 / Union 90-Day Enlistments Expire
Union player removes three SPs (Union player’s choice).

Message from Union:
Fort in Havover.
90 2/15/2020 9:53:00 PM Fall 1861 Confederate Play Strategy card as Operations #59: 2 / Farragut
Union may make a naval more with up to three SPs plus one general. Move may pass one ungarrisoned fort without “running the guns” to conduct an amphibious assault (may not pass an ironclad). Ignore first torpedo encountered during naval move. If the port space is captured it immediately receives a Union PC marker. Add +2 to Running the Guns die roll.

Message from Confederate:
Create Army of No Va in Richmond. JJ is Commanding General. CSA SW 101(-)
89 2/15/2020 8:11:00 PM Fall 1861 Union Play Strategy card as Event #98: 2 / Cape Hatteras Operations
Increase Union Blockade Level by 1

Message from Union:
Blockade level 2.
88 2/15/2020 12:11:00 PM Fall 1861 Union Message OK, I see now what happened. At #52 when you said there was 2 SP left in Hanover I assumed you were counting the cav SP as one of the losses (else you would have had to take the third SP loss from the infantry, and only n1 would have remained in the space). With the cav SP going to the TT instead, there would have been one less SP on-map the remainder of the turn, but it doesn't look like it would have changed anything except that Richmond would have had n2 at turn's end so no attrition. So agree that Richmond is n6 now.
87 2/15/2020 11:45:00 AM Fall 1861 Confederate Message I do not campaign
86 2/15/2020 11:38:00 AM Fall 1861 Union Message Richmond attrited to n2 at the end of last turn, will be n5 now.

53 2/6/2020 4:56:00 PM Summer 1861 Union Message Since you were defending with a corps rather than an army, JJ is also eligible for the leader loss; there should be another roll to see who gets killed. (It'll probably be Stuart anyway; he never survives in my games.)
