53 1/18/2021 5:21:00 AM Summer 1861 Confederate Message So to clarify, McDowell was the AOP's commmander so you replaced McDowell with McClellan. Is that right?

Is there a reason you are mentioning Burnside?

If you replaced McDowell with McClellan, you get a one-time +5 SW bonus per 5.67A

So SW is adjusted further

USA SW 84- +5 +2 COF to 91(+)

Message from Union:
Sorry lets change this
49 1/17/2021 4:18:00 PM Summer 1861 Confederate Message McClellan does not become commander of the AOP because McDowell is the current commander. You have to play a card, either an event or a card play for a general relief to put McClellan in command.

Right now McDowell is still the commanding general of the AOP.
48 1/17/2021 4:01:00 PM Summer 1861 Confederate Message You can't leave McDowell in Washington because he is the commanding general of the AOP.

Secondly it looks you want to move with 5 Sps to Annapolis. Please write that in the log in the future.

So can you clarify your move?
47 1/17/2021 12:46:00 PM Summer 1861 Confederate Message How many SPs are moving from DC?

34 1/14/2021 9:57:00 PM Spring 1861 Confederate Message Since all moves are entered into ACTS, can you in the future show the total of SPs in each space after you move them.

So for instance after moving 2 to Cairo (n5)

With n5 meaning "now 5"

33 1/14/2021 9:26:00 PM Spring 1861 Union Message sorry, the 2SP move to Cairo instead
32 1/14/2021 8:18:00 AM Spring 1861 Confederate Message That's ok.

Pittsburg cannot move SPs to Harper's Ferry because there is no friendly rail connection between the two spaces.

West Virginia is still neutral.

From 10.21
Neutral spaces may not be used for this movement.

Please correct.
31 1/14/2021 5:13:00 AM Spring 1861 Union Message Apologies, I did a save Vassal file rather than a Log. However see moves as per below.
