45 3/28/2020 5:22:00 PM Summer 1861 Union Message OK, Johnson will re-enter on the next reinforcement phase which is game turn 4 as there is no reinforcement phase on turn 3 Ė OK?

I lose 2 SPs (n4 SPs) and stop in Strasburg (Will Beauregard attempt interception in Strasburg?)

7.3 Battle Resolution
SPs for both sides are counted to determine battle size (your 1 + my 6 = 7)

over to you for your turn Ė sending file

44 3/28/2020 4:48:00 PM Summer 1861 Confederate Message Also, the strength of your force was 6 SPs, not 7 right? (Burnside had 1 and there were 5 SPs at Harper's Ferry.)
43 3/28/2020 4:46:00 PM Summer 1861 Confederate Message Because we didn't roll a modified 10 or higher, it seems that this rule from 5.6 applies, "Generals are removed from the map when their entire force is eliminated in battle and they re-enter play during a future Reinforcement Phase"
42 3/28/2020 4:39:00 PM Summer 1861 Union Message will be doing some reading and looking up at BGG will get back to you
41 3/28/2020 4:28:00 PM Summer 1861 Confederate Message I think so. So Union medium battle victory.

I'm wondering about General casualty roll; we didn't roll 10 or higher. Is there a rule about force getting wiped out and therefore general casualty roll?
40 3/28/2020 4:26:00 PM Summer 1861 Union Message is that correct?
39 3/28/2020 4:22:00 PM Summer 1861 Union Message
I think this is the result (I could be wrong)

We both rolled a modified 8
Your result is a 2*
My result is a 3 but can only loss 2 because of the size of your force.
You roll for Johnson killed on a 1
if not a 1 goes to the game turn track
Plus I can continue moving (have 6 MPs left)
