USA SW +5=2=102+
56 1/24/2021 3:02:00 PM Summer 1861 Union Message It's 1 plus the Cav. The way you should start thinking about is the cav is an SP when it's with the army. So if the army is 5 inf plus cav, it's just an army of 6.

44 1/18/2021 12:03:00 PM Summer 1861 Union Play Strategy card as Operations #37: 2 / Confederate Scientist
Confederate immediately receives three SPs in any friendly controlled space with a LOC, free of Union SPs or forts. No more than one SP per confederate controlled state. No SPs may be placed in Pro-Union spaces.

Message from Union:
USA PC markers in Lexington and Frankfort KY.
43 1/18/2021 12:01:00 PM Summer 1861 Union Message So you still have 7 inf in Richmond, and 1 Cav in Winchester.
42 1/18/2021 11:57:00 AM Summer 1861 Union Message Not a legal move.

Stuart became a cav brigade as soon as you put him in Richmond. So he can't be moved with a general move.

However, since you could've just put Stuart in Winchester (he was your only cav general, so you didn't have to draw him), we can just say you placed him in Winchester if you want.
41 1/18/2021 11:29:00 AM Summer 1861 Confederate Play Strategy card as Operations #28: 1 / Franz Sigel
Union immediately receives one SP in St. Louis, MO space if no Confederate SPs or fort are present, whether it is controlled by either side or neutral; OR Confederate plays card at the beginning of a battle and receives a +2 DRM in the battle.

19 1/16/2021 10:02:00 PM Spring 1861 Confederate Play Strategy card as Operations #42: 2 / Kentucky Anarchy
Remove up to three enemy PC markers in Kentucky. You must also remove one of your own PC markers from the state if you have any there. Removal of a PC marker makes a space neutral. Remove from deck if event is played.

Message from Confederate:
Greenville and Springfield MO get CSA markers

to you for reinforcements
18 1/16/2021 6:25:00 PM Spring 1861 Union Play Strategy card as Operations #33: 1 / Orphan Brigade

Message from Union:
Fort in Cairo.
17 1/16/2021 6:19:00 PM Spring 1861 Confederate Play Strategy card as Operations #66: 1 / Wilson's Creek
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.

Message from Confederate:
Franklin WV gets a CSA marker
16 1/16/2021 6:19:00 PM Spring 1861 Confederate Message Appreciate the Intel very much !

15 1/16/2021 6:03:00 PM Spring 1861 Union Message Since this is your first time as CSA, something to watch for.

If I'm going to go for Richmond early, it'll be real early--if the USA gets superiority in the theater, he might make a dash for it before Lee comes on board. Toughest decision for CSA is how to split forces between East and West in the first few turns.
14 1/16/2021 5:59:00 PM Spring 1861 Union Play Strategy card as Event #40: 3 / Emergency Call for Volunteers
Union receives five SPs, no more than two SPs in any space. Placement spaces must be friendly controlled, have a LOC and be free of Confederate SPs or forts.

Message from Union:

2 in AotP [5]

1 in Cairo [2]
13 1/16/2021 4:38:00 PM Spring 1861 Confederate Play Strategy card as Event #52: 3 / Trent Affair
Confederate gains 5 SW points. Remove from deck if event is played.

Message from Confederate:
CSA SW +5 = 105
12 1/16/2021 4:34:00 PM Spring 1861 Union Message By the way, you made a good move. I would have attacked Manassas again if it would have been a medium battle.
11 1/16/2021 4:33:00 PM Spring 1861 Union Play Strategy card as Event #113: 2 / Washington Defenses
The Union player may place 3 forts in friendly controlled spaces, unoccupied by Confederate SPs, on or within two spaces of the Union Capital (any location) OR 2 forts in any friendly controlled spaces unoccupied by Confederate SPs. Remove from deck if event is played.

Message from Union:
US forts in Harper's Ferry, Frederick, and Baltimore.

That, on the other hand, is a perfect turn 1 card.
10 1/16/2021 3:26:00 PM Spring 1861 Confederate Play Strategy card as Event #5: 1 / Dysentery
The person playing the card may remove one enemy SP from any space that contains more than one SP.

Message from Confederate:
remove 1 SP from AotP <3> now
9 1/16/2021 2:16:00 PM Spring 1861 Union Message Union SW falls to 95-.

That card sucks on the first turn. It is impossible to accomplish.

6 1/16/2021 2:13:00 PM Spring 1861 Union Message So that card has to be played as an event for Vassal to work and remove it from the game.
I'm actually using the Ops as required.
5 1/16/2021 2:13:00 PM Spring 1861 Union Play Strategy card as Event #14: 3 / Red River Campaign
May not be discarded by the Union. Union must use this card as an OC. If at the conclusion of movement, a Union SP is not on or adjacent to Grand Ecore, LA, then the Union loses 5 SW points. If a Union SP is in one of the objective spaces then a Union PC marker can immediately be placed to convert the space or spaces. Remove from deck if Union plays card.

Message from Union:
AotP attacks Manassas.
4 1/12/2021 8:27:00 PM Spring 1861 Confederate Message No campaign card for me
