If a Union SP is in one of the objective spaces then a Union PC marker can immediately be placed to convert the space or spaces. Remove from deck if Union plays card.

Either player may move up to two infantry SPs from the same space as if they were 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 Confederate:
2SPs leave Williamsburg (n1) to move to Fort Monroe sending Butler to the TRT and dropping 1, then returning to Williamsburg - n2.

Neither one of us had a particularly good hand, but I think you made good use of your cards.
