Message from Confederate:
Battle of St. Louis

DR#1 - Union attack roll, +1drm

DR#2 - Confederate defense roll, +5drm
340 5/3/2020 5:06:00 PM Spring 1863 Confederate Message OK, the AoM has to cross into St Louis coming from Alton, since it can't cross the river from Salem-Vandalia because the Confederates have a fort. Did you want to pick up the 1SP at Alton as you attack St Louis?

The Union AoM is at 10SP. The Confederate AoW is at 11SP. This makes this a Large Battle.

The Union AoM does not have a Cavalry Brigade, so it suffers from not having CAVALRY INTELLIGENCE (Rule 7.52). The commanding general, Grant, has his battle rating reduced from "3" to "1".

The AoM has only one other general, Butler, whose "0" rating is added. Therefore, the net Union DRM is +1drm.

The Confederate AoW has Price, "1", plus Morgan "1", plus Beauregard "1". It also gets a +2drm for having a fort. Therefore the Rebel DRM is +5drm.

There is no Force Ration modifier.

They will move to Lexington KY and join J.Johnston and his 5SP force there.
337 5/3/2020 2:21:00 PM Spring 1863 Confederate Message Grant was not the highest rated General on the map, as McClellan was available, so the Union suffers a -2SW penalty.

Playing this card to have 2SP'S in Frederick go to Washington to join the AOP.
299 4/25/2020 11:03:00 AM Fall 1862 Confederate Message Nope, look at Rule 7.33 "When the Winner is Eliminated". Remove the Union 1SP, and remove 1SP from the Confederate force.

Pemberton and 3SP retreat back to Williamsburg VA. The Union General Butler is placed on the Turn Record Track, and will enter next Turn as a Reinforcement.

Fort Monroe remains in the Union hands, so it still has a USA PC marker.

Your turn.
298 4/25/2020 10:47:00 AM Fall 1862 Union Message It looks like its a 1/1 tie. But since the Union lost their 1SP, do the Rebs still win?

295 4/24/2020 4:22:00 PM Fall 1862 Confederate Play Strategy card as Event #100: 3 / Shiloh
Confederate Player may move 5 SPs using Strategic Movement (rail connections only) to the same space with a Confederate General who is then activated and must attempt to enter a space with at least one or more Union SPs or fort. If a general casualty occurs in a battle caused by this card, the Commanding General is eligible, this is an exception to the rules. See 4.5.

Message from Confederate:
I'll play this as the Event. Move the following by RR to Richmond VA.

1SP from Baldwin FL
1SP from Morehead City NC
1SP from Tuscumbia AL
1SP from New Orleans LA
1SP from Pensacola FL

There are now 6SP with Pemberton in Richmond VA.

Pemberton will take 4SP with him and attack Butler and 1SP in Fort Monroe. This will leave 2SP behind in Richmond VA.
294 4/24/2020 2:42:00 PM Fall 1862 Union Message No, that's it. Only two forces.
293 4/24/2020 11:56:00 AM Fall 1862 Confederate Message You can move up to 3 forces with a Major Campaign. So far, you have moved only 2 forces. Anybody else moving?

289 4/23/2020 8:13:00 AM Fall 1862 Confederate Message Burnside cannot be made the Commanding General of the AoC, as he is in Falmouth KY. Only the highest rated general in the space where the Army is created can be named the Commanding General, which is Rosecrans.
288 4/23/2020 6:59:00 AM Fall 1862 Union Message Burnside will be the Commanding General.
287 4/22/2020 5:11:00 PM Fall 1862 Confederate Message OK, I have the following for the Army of the Cumberland (AOC):

Commanding General: Rosecrans

Cavalry General: Stoneman

Other General: Curtis

Total Strength: There were 12SP and 1SP Cavalry Brigade, so the total strength is 13SP.

Rosecrans was not the highest rated General on the map, as McClellan, Fremont, Halleck, Butler and Burnside were all available, so the Union suffers a -2SW penalty. There is also a -3SW Changing Fortunes of War, as the SW changes from (+) to (-).

Therefore the Union SW drops from 93(+) to 88(-).
286 4/22/2020 10:28:00 AM Fall 1862 Union Play Strategy card as Operations #55: 1 / CSS Tennessee
Confederate may place one Ironclad in a controlled port or coastal fort space.

Union SW reduced by two.

Message from Confederate:
Form the Army of the West in St. Louis MO.

Price is the Commanding General. Since he is not the highest rated General available, the Confederate suffer a -2SW penalty. Confederate SW drops from 106(-) to 104(-).

Morgan is the Cavalry General, and Longstreet is an Other General.

The AoW is at 13SP.
284 4/21/2020 9:42:00 AM Fall 1862 Union Message Yes, I would like to leave 1SP behind in Alton.
