Message from Union:
Lets see if I have this
The highest goes Cairo
next highest goes to Bloomington
3rd highest goes to Washington DC
4th highest goes to Pittsburgh
rest to AoP
Burnside
Banks
Buell
Halleck
Pope
Rosecrans
McClellan
So if I understand this if the 7th die roll is the highest McClellan would go to Cairo?

41 1/3/2021 7:28:00 PM Spring 1861 Confederate Message So in this imaginary example JJ would go to Richmond, Smith to Columbus, Bragg to Fred. (But I actually put them all in Fred.)

Let me know if any questions

Message from Confederate:
So, this is **not my actual placement**, because I'm putting all my generals in Fredericksburg, but here's how it'd work if I wanted to put 1 in Richmond, 1 in Columbus KY, and 1 in Fredericksburg:

JJ
Smith
Bragg

Highest to Richmond, next to Columbus, lowest to Fred
39 1/3/2021 7:26:00 PM Spring 1861 Confederate Message I'll put all my generals in Fredericksburg, actually

But for general placement, list all the generals and set a 999- (or 99-) sided die for each one in an order, and say where the highest (or highest 3, or whatnot) will go, assigning all the places you're sending them to, then roll
38 1/3/2021 7:24:00 PM Spring 1861 Confederate Message SM (and then I'll show you general placement):

1 Mobile - Columbus KY [2]
1 Tuscumbia - Fredericksburg [3]
1 Columbus GA - Fred [4]
1 Savannah - Fred [5]
2 Charleston - Fred [7]
1 Marion - Fred [8]
37 1/3/2021 7:15:00 PM Spring 1861 Confederate Message Sorry, meant SP in Fredericksburg, not Manassas
36 1/3/2021 7:08:00 PM Spring 1861 Union Message I did not receive the messages for ACTs about the SW and other items I only received your reinforcements. Speaking of reinforcements I have the AoP in Manasas wondering how you can place an SP there.
Washington 8 SP (total of 9 SP in Washington)
Bloomington IN has 6 SP
Cairo IL 4 SP for a total of 5 SP
Move 6 SP from Washington DC to AoP in Manasas VA AoP 7SP
That was 6 Rail now have 9 rail left
Rail 2 SP from Cairo to St. Louis Fremont (4 SP) Cairo 3 SP
That will be all.
How do we place Generals?


35 1/3/2021 10:11:00 AM Spring 1861 Confederate Message Yes, you now have PCs in all of WV, and Union SW is 107(+)
34 1/3/2021 8:12:00 AM Spring 1861 Union Message I am back, mouth is still sore and the drugs really bring me down. A question; does not the USA now control West Virginia and US PC markers placed in Weston, Franklin and in the Control box? I am not sure but does the USA SW flip to + and 2 SW added for a SW of +107 for USA?
33 12/29/2020 12:17:00 PM Spring 1861 Confederate Message Forgot my blockade runners:
Sabine City TX
Columbus GA
Charleston SC [2]
Wilmington NC [2]
32 12/29/2020 12:16:00 PM Spring 1861 Confederate Message T2 reinfs:

Dover TN
Manassas VA
Weldon NC
Marion SC
Savannah GA
Ft Gadsen FL
Ft St P/J LA
Corinth MS
Tuscumbia AL

Over to you for your T2 reinfs and Strategic Movement (and generals, unless you want to see my SM before allocating them)

27 12/29/2020 11:53:00 AM Spring 1861 Confederate Message If Commanding General is the only leader in an army, I think General Casualty can't take place
26 12/29/2020 11:07:00 AM Spring 1861 Union Message I will be going in today to get the tooth pulled not sure what later today or tomorrow will look like for me doing a move.
25 12/29/2020 7:46:00 AM Spring 1861 Union Message Just to update you; my jaw is sore from the pulling and installing of the temp. cap and the new caps going on. Everything else went okay yesterday. On the 12th of January I will be getting a tooth pulled.

Have a great New Year and a great gaming New Year. I hope that we have WBC in 2021.
24 12/29/2020 7:33:00 AM Spring 1861 Union Message Thanks for the information I did not see rule 7.72 if the battle was a ratio lower than 3:1 and he was the only general in the army would the role for Casualties take place then?
Here is the rest of my move:
AoP leaves 1 SP in Winchester moves to Harpers Ferry (AoP 3 SP) moves to Frederick attacks Manasas Beauregard. AoP 3 SP
23 12/27/2020 8:35:00 AM Spring 1861 Confederate Message And AoP is 4 now
22 12/27/2020 8:34:00 AM Spring 1861 Confederate Message No leader casualty roll for McDowell, both because he had a force ratio of at least 3:1, and because he's commanding general of an army
21 12/27/2020 6:28:00 AM Spring 1861 Union Message I hope that you have had a great holiday. If I am correct there are 5 Union SP in Winchester, McDowell dies in the battle 0 SP in Harpers Ferry 1 in Frederick.
20 12/27/2020 6:25:00 AM Spring 1861 Union Message So the leader dies.
19 12/27/2020 6:24:00 AM Spring 1861 Union Die roll request Request: 6-sided die x 1

Message from Union:
I am unsure about this with the rolling of General Casualties part rule 7.7 says 'All generals (including Cavalry general(s) present (even if their rating was not used in the battle) unless exempted by an event or the commanding General of an Army..' I knew that this was bad after I had sent the move should have gone in with a smaller force.
18 12/23/2020 12:59:00 PM Spring 1861 Confederate Message JJ to TT, back to you for last 3 MPs

If played by Union, reduce Confederate SW by 2; if played by Confederate, Confederate immediately receives two SPs in any Blockade Runner port, no more than one SP per port, but more than 1SP per Blockade zone is permitted.

During a Union playerís turn cause a Confederate force to immediately execute an attrition procedure plus conduct Forage if force has no LOC. Remove from deck if event is played.

9 12/21/2020 10:52:00 AM Spring 1861 Confederate Play Strategy card as Operations #105: 1 / Detached Cavalry
Played prior to a battle against an army possessing one or more cavalry brigades. The ONLY effects are the Armyís Commanding Generalís battle rating (offense or defense) is immediately reduced by 2 and no Cavalry generalís battle ratings may be used in the battle. The effects end at the conclusion of the battle. Cavalry generals are not available for casualty determination. OR: Place one PC marker in any space within four spaces (includes river connections) of a single cavalry brigade. The four space range many not be traced through Northeast Alabama. The space may not contain an enemy SP or fort, but may contain an Ironclad or Torpedoes.

Message from Confederate:
PC Frankfurt KY

I think you just have to pick out the cards separately in VASSAL. ACTS and VASSAL can't really "speak" to each other
8 12/21/2020 10:47:00 AM Spring 1861 Union Play Strategy card as Operations #118: 3 / Mexican Supply Line
Confederate player receives 2 SP in any friendly controlled Texas space (both SPs placed in the same space). The space does not need a LOC. The space may not contain Union SPs or forts. If no eligible space exists the SPs are lost.

Message from Union:
Place PC markers in Falmouth KY, Charleston WV Lwesisburg WV

I see that Vassal allows for the cards to be used from ACTS how do you set up the game to do that or select the cards from the deck to be displayed in the Vassal file?
7 12/20/2020 3:12:00 PM Spring 1861 Confederate Play Strategy card as Operations #95: 2 / Strategy Board
Union player may make a naval move with up to three SPs plus one general.

Message from Union:
Place PC markers in Grafton WV and Parkersburg WV

I hope that this is correct.
