A wizard is never late ...

Rather stupidly I forgot to move General Winder to Memphis early enough. No,no, no. You have to phrase it so that it was your plan to delay Winder all along! :thumbsup: Something along the lines that “While General Winder might advance to Memphis, I delayed him to allow for unforseen contingencies....

Thanks for the update.

So did the Rebels gain a lot more manpower in the new version, or did you just gain more bucks?

Slow and Steady

Take your time. The AAR is not a rush item. ;)

After all, the civil war wasn't over in ninety days, despite what all the pundits claimed at the start. :mdr:

Wow.
As usual, a plethora of game data.

Looks like Virginia is in a whirlpool of destruction. :w00t:

Falling behind a bit. I am working on my update for Late May currently and should have it posted soon!! I have realized, I may have bitten off a little more than I can chew with the UJN.

My Mistake

The route past Plaquemine is Shallow; it's closed to Ocean-going warships. I was able to get to Baton Rouge, because I had taken both forts at the Head of the Passes. I used Route #1, the Historical Route. Yea, I saw your explanation in the other forum. I was wrong in my interpretation of your earl...

Have you considered sending the doomed unit to not only retake Harper's, but also move on across the river to resume control of Fredericktown?

Nice layout and illustrations.

Um, what 'atrocities' article?
I noticed nothing in the entry for Harpers and Norfolk about that kind of activity. :confused:

An Informed Populace

A most enjoyable and informative report. :thumbsup:

If I may suggest, hold off on future use of lavender text on grey background. :(
I find that low contrast lettering is more of a challenge to read, at least for myself.

Schoolin

I think it is better to keep them all stacked singly, only one will be engaged at a time then, and if they have avoid combat stance they can sometimes survive being attacked. If stacked separately, they have higher evasion status, but if stacked together, damage is spread to more ships, so mostly c...

My only omission is to refuse to purchase the riverboat. I cannot compete with the Union navy and so will make no real attempt except perhaps on the Mississippi depending on how events unfold. While you may not be able to compete with the Federal fleet, would it not be cost effective to at least ma...

Ignore it and maybe it will go away

You will notice the lack of a decision on the blockade. ... In more narrative terms, I would call it an unwillingness by President Lincoln (in this case, me) to in any way recognize the right of the Confederate States of America to even exist. In THIS "Lincoln's" opinion, it would be in Britain's b...

With this 'feature' the Union will not have to worry too much about the "on to Richmond" events. He will gain some NM through regular events, and each turn possibly gain a point because his NM is below 100. So don't expect either player to suffer from low NM for very long. So I guess that in this g...

Good imagery supporting your text description of the plan.
