83 2/25/2021 2:04:00 AM Fall 1861 Confederate Play Strategy card as Event #118: 3 / Mexican Supply Line
Confederate player receives 2 SP in any friendly controlled Texas space (both SPs placed in the same space). The space does not need a LOC. The space may not contain Union SPs or forts. If no eligible space exists the SPs are lost.

Message from Confederate:
2 SPs in Marshall, TX
82 2/20/2021 9:29:00 AM Fall 1861 Union Message Thanks for doing SW. You just go ahead when you are ready
81 2/20/2021 9:02:00 AM Fall 1861 Confederate Message Correction USA SW is 96(-)

104(+) -8 = 96(-)
80 2/20/2021 8:59:00 AM Fall 1861 Confederate Message STEP 1: Both players place friendly Political Control markers (PCs) in all spaces containing in supply friendly, infantry SPs. If the space contains an enemy PC, it is immediately removed by flipping
the PC onto its other side. If a Confederate SP is in a Southern state or a Union SP is in a Northern state and “flips” a PC marker, in actuality the enemy PC marker is removed re-establishing friendly
control of the space (see 11.1). If a Union PC marker is placed on a non-destroyed Confederate Resource Space, it is destroyed (and the appropriate SW effect is applied [12.2]).

STEP 2: Next both players determine State control (i.e., who
controls the Confederate and Border States) and Union SW penalties for the presence of Confederate PC markers in Union states
[12.1]. State control is determined by a side having PC markers in the required number of spaces as denoted by the values on the map [12.11, 12.13]. In addition, naval control of the Mississippi provides the Union with a one-time bonus [12.8].

STEP 3: Lastly, Union War Weariness and Confederate War Guilt SW penalties are assessed [12.9]. Forts on the game turn track are now available [6.8].


USA SW changes
+1 fort st. phillip jackson
+1 Little Rock
+2 change of fortune
100 (-) to 104(+)

-5 War Weariness
-3 COF
105(+) to 97(-)

Sorry no time left to play for now.
79 2/20/2021 8:56:00 AM Fall 1861 Confederate Message FIrst you need to wait for the CSA to determine if they are going to play first before starting a turn.

Second, I'm really busy so I was hoping you would try and read the rules and recalculate it.
78 2/18/2021 6:33:00 AM Fall 1861 Union Message And regarding SW. Please correct it if anything is wrong and/or go ahead with your turn
77 2/18/2021 6:32:00 AM Fall 1861 Union Play Strategy card as Operations #28: 1 / Franz Sigel

72 2/16/2021 11:41:00 AM Fall 1861 Confederate Message The SW totals are still wrong.

Please review 3.42 and recalculate.

STEP 1: Both players place friendly Political Control markers (PCs) in all spaces containing in supply friendly, infantry SPs. If the space contains an enemy PC, it is immediately removed by flipping

69 2/16/2021 11:35:00 AM Fall 1861 Confederate Message ANV -2 (n9) and AOP -2 (n13) from attrition

AOP +2 strat movement to (n15)

Best to document this in the log.

CSA Strat Movement
Nashville to ANV (n10)
Memphis to Dover (n3)
Marion to Dover (n4)
Fort Morgan to ANV (n11)
Ft Fisher to ANV (n12)
Wilmington 2 to ANV (n15)

Van Dorn and Pemberton to ANV
68 2/14/2021 4:41:00 AM Fall 1861 Union Message SW corrected. Now CSA 95(+), US 96(-)

Attrition: 2 from AoP and AoNV

No reinforcements

US strat moves: 1 SP Ft Jackson to Washington (n3), SP Rolla to Bowling Green (n3), SP Ironton to Bowling Green (n4), SP Lebanon to Bowling Green (n5) , Louisville to Bowling Green (n6), Pittsburgh to Baltimore, 2 SP Harpers Ferry to AoP (n15)

Bty
67 2/14/2021 4:36:00 AM Fall 1861 Confederate Message Loss of ft Jackson is only -1/+1
66 2/14/2021 4:30:00 AM Fall 1861 Union Message SW: +2 from Ft Jackson + 1 from Little Rock + 2 FoW -5 War Guilt - 3 Fow, net result -3 US SW, now 97 (-)

SW CSA -2 Ft Jackson - 1 Little Rock - 3 FoW, then flipped to (+), net result -6 SW, now 94(+)
65 2/14/2021 4:23:00 AM Fall 1861 Union Message Corrections:

Halleck and 1 SP via rail Bloomington - Vernon - Concinnati (pick up 2 SP n3) - Vernon - Bloomington - Louisville - Lebanon (drop 1, n1) - Bowling Green, end off movement (no battle in Nashville)

Butler and 2 SP from Ft Monroe sails to Sabine City, while Rosencrans stays at Ft Jackson

Burnside and 5 SP - Ironton (drop 1 SP, n4) - Rolla (drop 1 SP, n3) - Ironton - Greenville - New Madrid (drop 1 SP, n2) - Elizabeth - Little Rock (drop 1 SP, n1) - Elizabeth end of movement

Net result is the same SW-wise. Changes are that Lebanon also flipped, no attrition at Hallecks place
64 2/14/2021 3:57:00 AM Fall 1861 Confederate Message Also Halleck cannot use the rail bonus to move into an enemy space, so that move needs to be revised also.

So 2 corrections so far

1) Rosecrans cannot amphibiously assault
2) Halleck cannot use the rail bonus to move into Nashville.
63 2/14/2021 3:56:00 AM Fall 1861 Confederate Message Rosecrans cannot amphibiously assault from Ft. St. Philip-Jackson because the port/fort is not Union controlled.

See 6.1
Naval movement is conducted from any single
Union-controlled port or coastal fort space (which are ports and an LOC is not required) into any other port or coastal fort (either side’s control)

Please revise.
62 2/14/2021 3:45:00 AM Fall 1861 Union Message US attrition 1 SP Bowling Green + 2 SP AoP, CSA attrition 2 SP AoNV

US War Guilt -5 SW + 3 from FoW, so US SW now 97 (-)
61 2/14/2021 3:44:00 AM Summer 1861 Union End Turn Deck was reshuffled.

60 2/14/2021 3:41:00 AM Summer 1861 Union Message Political phase:
US SPs take command of Sabine City (TX), Ft. Jackson (LA), Bowling Green (KY), Rolla, Ironton and New Madrid (all MO), Elizabeth and Little Rock (AR)

Resource point Little Rock destroyed for 1 SW and Ft Jackson captured for 2 SW. With FoW that gives CSA now 94(-) and US now 105 (+)
59 2/14/2021 3:37:00 AM Summer 1861 Union Message 1/1
The defenders of Nashville are wiped out but bravely manages to stop the US forces from overtaking Nashville and destroying the resource point

When an army intercepts from a space with a fort, the maximum number of SPS that can be left behind is 1, so AOP has to go to Frederick with 4 SPS or 5 Sps.

Which was it? You can't leave 2 Sps behind.
