Will go to Stanton
273 5/5/2020 11:56:00 PM Summer 1862 Union Message Didn't mean to sow confusion-- because of the earlier loss on this same move, Jackson can retreat automatically without a die roll (7.22), unless you prefer to have him stand and fight. The first battle is the one where he would have had to roll a 1-3 in order to retreat (with cav it would have been 1-5).

Message from Confederate:
In What universe do I live Weíre Jackson and foreskin wiped out at the start of the war ď Wow to the VictorĒ

May i ask a stupid question Jackson couldnít retreat before because he had not lost a battle and he didnít have cav?

Formica Wall Jackson to run way And run away manfully
271 5/5/2020 2:49:00 AM Summer 1862 Union Message Ignore the "if Jackson doesn't manage to evade" nonsense; it's very late here. Of course after the defeat at Culpeper Jackson doesn't have to roll for retreats.
270 5/5/2020 2:27:00 AM Summer 1862 Union Message SW after the big battle is Union 91+, rebels 91-.
269 5/5/2020 2:24:00 AM Summer 1862 Union Message AoP continues with all 10=n9+c1:
4. PC in Culpeper.
5. Attack Strasburg. It'll be medium size at +7/+4 if Jackson doesn't manage (or want) to evade.

259 5/5/2020 1:55:00 AM Summer 1862 Union Play Strategy card as Operations #20: 3 / Union Arms Production Delayed
Confederate removes two Union SPs (Confederate chooses). No more than one SP can be removed from a space and the SP cannot be the last SP in the space.

Message from Union:
Activate McD/AoP, leaving Halleck, Stoneman, and 14=n13+c1 in Manassas, thus moving with n1:
1. Frederick, pick up Curtis and the 5 infantry (AoP n6; Frederick c1 with Pleasonton).
2. Manassas, drop Curtis, pick up Halleck, Stoneman, and 8 SP including the cavalry (AoP 14=n13+c1; Manassas n6 with Curtis).
3. Attack Culpeper. If the battle happens it would be large at +3/+4 (Jackson's defense knocked down to 1 for no cav). File 259U will show the end result of all the shuffling.
258 5/4/2020 10:44:00 PM Summer 1862 Union Message Done, it's the Army of Tennessee. The usual trouble with AS Johnston, CSA SW 96-. I'm probably going to be a while pondering my next move.
257 5/4/2020 10:35:00 PM Summer 1862 Union Message Well done, boys. Stuart killed, Fitz Lee to turn track for summer 1863, 1 SP to turn track for next turn. Culpeper n6 with Jackson and Longstreet.

221 5/2/2020 7:45:00 PM Spring 1862 Union Message We may have arrived at a rules dispute then: my take is that there were 7 SP in the space when Empty Haversacks was played so they lost 2 and how they're split between infantry and cav doesn't enter into it. Should we ask the moderator do you think?

214 5/2/2020 5:30:00 PM Spring 1862 Union Message I has the force ratio coming in as 15-5, which is how I came up with the +4 for the Union. (ANV was attrited to 5 in entry #203.) If you agree after checking the record the question is, on your word of honor as a Southern gentleman, would you have still stood and fought knowing that the ANV could be eliminated? If not, the fair thing would be for you to roll for the retreat. (If it comes up 6 we'd still apply the combat result as rolled.)

Either player may move 2 SPs using Strategic Movement from the same space using rail connections only (10 space maximum) to the same space with a General who is then activated and must attempt to enter a space with at least one or more enemy SPs or fort. OR play this card as an automatic 2 space interception. Intervening space must be friendly controlled and free of enemy SPs. The intervening space may be the one just exited by the moving enemy force. No Generals or SPs may be picked up or dropped off during the intercept.

Message from Union:
Let's finish this turn with a bang. AoP moving with all 8 (Frederick n0):

Manassas attrited down to 3 at the end of last turn. 6 were added in SM for 9, Forrest intercepted in for 10, and 4 combat losses leaves 6.
