Lot of actions and great gain in Morale points by The Confiscation Act and battles won.Army Warfare
Time for some picture to give a better understanding of the armies on the map.
In the FW nothing to say, no one is pushing in this theatre.
Rolla militia is trying to destroy the railroad at Jefferson City every turn but without success.
Shelby assaulted Quincy but the garrison hold the city even if it lost the battle.
Polk is moving to Humboldt ready to occupy Paducah when the possbility will arise (Kentucky is still neutral).
Same for Zollicofer that moved to Gallatin.
In West Virginia I have enough MC along the railroad that connect Morgantown and Harpers Ferry to keep my units supplied.
My forces here are volunteers and cavalry units, not enough to keep the offensive but I am thinking to move a good general to take Wheeling and to threat Pittsburg.
Jackson successfully defeat a small brigade in Franklin with a clear path to Harrisburg or York.
In Alexandria there are 2000+ CP in entrenched status and a direct assault if out of question but, to my surprise, has been the Union Army to attack me.
Two bloody battles but thanks an oustanding defence by Beauregard's troops and a bad organized attack with lot of concripts in the Union force we captured 8700 men plus 3100 rifles (+6 NM).
Entrenchments and no penalty on command made the day.
The enemy force is still strong though, is still a 1:2 odds in his favor, Alexandria has 320 CP and around Fredericktown there are another 550 CP (maybe his was trying to catch Jackson). Naval Warfare
