55 2/5/2021 12:14:00 PM Summer 1861 Confederate Message Error: Confederate lost the last battle so he retreats to Franklin.
54 2/5/2021 11:56:00 AM Summer 1861 Confederate Message Battle size is medium (7 total SPs).
Defense rolled a 5 + 1(Rosecrans defense) = 6 which translates to 1 Confederate SPs lost (the defender determines the attacker's losses from the attacker column, 7.31C).
Offense rolled a 3 + 1 (Johnson's offense) = 4 which translates to 1 Union SP lost.
Since the losses incurred are equal, the defender wins => Union victory.
Since the army attacker started with more than twice the strength of the defender (5 to 2), the attacker may continue. However, he can't move into Paducah from Dover because of the Dover riverine Port. But he can move through McKenzie into Columbus and then into Paducah. The total number of moves at this point is 5. He can then expend his last movement space to convert Paducah to Confederate control.
