Welcome to the forum.
Is Fort Sumter in CSA hands by now ?
Thanks. Sumter still holds out. The siege guns have arrived, and another assault is about to start.
Now on to the rest of Late July 1861
Quite a lot of battles this turn. Thankfully, the CSA won most of them.
I guess this means the Army of the West will have time to arrive!
Floyd won the battle but lost the campaign. No choice but to retreat now.
I'll send him down to join Winder and the cavalry.
Speaking of Winder, he caught some Yankees and beat them. Hopefully that'll enable Floyd to retreat safely. Just in case Winder is retreating a province or two as well.
Harpers Ferry is back in my hands, and i captured some VW (not Volkswagen!
) artillery into the bargain! Johnston is just going to hold there for now, and try to incorporate some reinforcements.
Those Rolla volunteers are made of the right stuff! Taking a beating, but still holding out!
Mr. Price on the other hand failed to engage Lyon's Yankees in the open, and will now have to face assaulting them in the city. I need him to move up to help our Rolla Heroes as soon as possible!
Those Rangers I mentioned earlier are going to try to angle the Yankees out of Fort Gibson. Hopefully without getting into combat while crossing a river...
By the by, if you are wondering why i am jumping all over the place rather than organizing myself and reporting one theater at a time, it is because i tend to make my moves as i go through the messages for the turn. That way i don't miss anything. If you find it too confusing, pipe up, and I'll consider getting myself better organized.
Wise's Legion has captured Lewisburg, and stumbled on some Yankee raiders. Think we can catch them?
Gustavus Smith is rushing over to Munfordville to take command until a proper army command can be set up in the Kentucky theater.
His command won't be the most impressive at first, but it might be enough for a quick rush on Louisville. General Smith will have to make that call once he arrives.
Meanwhile, Zollicoffer moves up a bit, to provide support if things go badly, but without moving so far as to uncover Nashville completely.
In other news, various state militia and conscript units are starting their journey towards the front lines. The rail and river pool are increased, and the government prints more money. I don't have enough resources for any recruiting this turn.
To be continued...
In the east, some proper bureaucracy for the ANV! Is there any point to building further fieldhospitals, engineers and signals unit for this army now?
