192 11/25/2020 3:56:00 PM Spring 1863 Union Message NOTE: In JE 128 I won the AA against Ft. Fisher, but maybe should have not claimed the SW at that time. While looking at amphibious assault comments in the rules, I came upon this on p7 (pdf) of the rules under Union Strategy Round 2: “… The Combat Results Table specifies that each side losses 1 SP, but because it is an ungarrisoned fort, the attacker (Union) wins ties if it has surviving SPs, so the Union wins the small battle and one Union SP occupies Fort Pulaski. The Union does not control the fort space until a Union PC marker is placed on Fort Pulaski.”

I could NOT find another reference to that elsewhere. In EOT (3.42 STEP 1) the placing of a PC on a non-destroyed Confederate Resource Space, it is destroyed (and the appropriate SW effect is applied).

It may be a small point, but I wanted to bring it up to see if you agree.

191 11/25/2020 3:10:00 PM Spring 1863 Union Message USA wins 1* to 1. Pope and 2 are on Ft Sumter.

171 11/23/2020 9:13:00 AM Spring 1863 Confederate Play Strategy card as Operations #14: 3 / Red River Campaign
May not be discarded by the Union. Union must use this card as an OC. If at the conclusion of movement, a Union SP is not on or adjacent to Grand Ecore, LA, then the Union loses 5 SW points. 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.

The space may not contain an enemy SP or fort, but may contain an Ironclad or Torpedoes.
