332 1/19/2021 1:28:00 PM Spring 1863 Confederate Play Strategy card as Event #3: 1 / Forward to Richmond
Union may activate any Union army within 4 spaces of Richmond, VA. The army must enter Richmond or move as close to Richmond as possible, but may convert spaces to maintain an LOC. All SPs associated with the army must be moved (no dropping off SPs), except 1 SP may be left if the Army began its movement from a fort (if last SP, move completed). If played by the Confederate, he draws a card from the Union hand which is discarded, and the Union player follows the instructions of this card as his next card play.

Message from Confederate:
Let's just see what happens. :)

Over to you to discard and drive on Richmond.

CSA SW = 89-
USA SW = 54-

314 1/17/2021 3:01:00 AM Fall 1862 Confederate Message AoM would be n3 after attrition and a union PC to Frederick too.

What is more important, I think you won the battle of Frederick as it is a state capital - ties are won by the defender, asterik or no asterik.
313 1/16/2021 12:50:00 PM Fall 1862 Union Message Killing the AOM would have given me MUCH more hope. Alas....

ATTRITION:

CSA:
-1 Harrisburg (AOM n4)
-1 Richmond (n2)
-1 Staunton (ANV n3)
-1 Marshall (n3)

USA:
-1 Frederick (AOP n4)
-1 Pittsburgh (n5)
-2 Paducah (AOT n5)

I will replace my capitol at Springfield, IL

To you to confirm then end turn
312 1/16/2021 12:45:00 PM Fall 1862 Union Message Actually I'll do the end stuff...

USA PCs:

CSA raid into PA and war weariness take effect (darn it, still no EP)

USA SW = 59(-) -5 -5 = 49(-)

A fingernail clipping away from CSA victory. Let's see if Grant can save the Union next turn.
311 1/16/2021 12:41:00 PM Fall 1862 Union Message Go ahead and run through the end phase.

I am -1 SP next turn for Harrisburg but fortunately can still trace rail from DC. That said, as much blood as the CSA has shed I am still just hanging on.
