627 7/29/2020 5:51:00 PM Turn 13 Union Message from 20.1.3, "The player that controls both River Ports of Decatur AL (hex 3221) and Stevenson AL (hex 3125) controls the stretch of the Tennessee River above the Muscle Shoals"...

since I now control Decatur, I think that stretch of river between Decatur and Stevenson is uncontrolled... from 5.4.4, a ferry can't be used if the opposing player has Naval Control there... since that stretch of river is now uncontrolled, I think I can use that railroad (and the ferry) down to Decatur...

(and the fort at Alexandria finishes)
578 7/29/2020 10:24:00 AM Turn 12 Union Message we're going to empty the tank on this one...

1) Hooker takes 2 SP, goes to Blakely and picks up those 3, and attacks Pemberton with a West card
2) Grant plays an Any card to gain 2 MP... the whole stack moves down the railroad to 2915, controls it, then into 2914, then attacks Memphis...

Grant uses an Any card and a Naval card (for Naval Support, 18.1) to gain +3 for the battle...

(if you choose to fight, I'll have 9 SP, two dice, +5 total... you'll have 4 SP, one die, +7 total)
