301 1/26/2021 6:29:00 PM Spring 1863 Union Message If you want me to roll it I just need CSA DRM.
300 1/26/2021 5:33:00 PM Spring 1863 Union Message AoP eliminated. McClellan, Stoneman, and Fremont to TRT. SP12 transferred to AoC, n16. USA+7 for combat.

USA SW 107(+) -10 destruction of AoP, -10 McClellan, -3 COF = 84(-)

Hated to do it, but 2/3 chance you’d destroy AoC if I didn’t.

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.

AoNV 1 retreats before battle to Petersburg p/u 6 n7 and J Johnston, Morgan and Smith
293 1/26/2021 12:44:00 PM Spring 1863 Union Message Actually I will revise that. Drop SP8 in Williamsburg, AoC n4 attacks Richmond.

I presume AoNV retreats to Richmond, but suppose it could choose another option. Either way AoC moves in Richmond either capturing city or destroying AoNV.
292 1/26/2021 12:19:00 PM Spring 1863 Union Message You can decide whether to retreat and/or roll for combat. USA using maximum DRM, Grant, Pope, Kilpatrick and ratio

267 1/23/2021 11:57:00 PM Fall 1862 Union Message Unlikely he will intercept and with those rolls it would not have changed outcome.
266 1/23/2021 11:00:00 PM Fall 1862 Confederate Message My apologies Jeff, I simply overlooked McDowell as he was under the SP marker on my map
why don't you just go ahead and roll the interception; if it fails then I would say the battle stands as rolled; if he succeeds you can roll for the battle adjusting for the leader and the interception bonus
265 1/23/2021 9:13:00 PM Fall 1862 Union Message I sent a message to Moderator seeking advice on situation.
264 1/23/2021 9:07:00 PM Fall 1862 Union Message There was a possibility of intercept in Ironton by McDowell and SP2 from St. Louis. Don’t know what to do now though since combat was rolled.

USA has received 3SP from event cards and cause SP2 to be removed by CSA.

CSA has received 11SP from event cards and caused SP3 to be removed by USA.

EFFECTS: 1. Union Blockade reduced by one (cannot become greater than 4 for the remainder of the game). 2. Union -2 SP Reinforcements for the remainder of the game (Union choice). 3.
