Because Naturmix have really much fun to write his first AAr, i want also try this. This will be my first AAr and I'am not a native english speaker, pls have leniency for me.

This will be my view of our game, if you want to read Naturmix view, you can read his AAr below.

The first shot and the first battle, on the 12.04.1861. This day will the Union always remember the beginning of the war and for the soldiers, that fought bravery against the invaders and killed for every Union soldiers 13 CSA soldiers.

I have the feeling this will be ourer longest game round. Thats why, i will build many blockade ships.

3.Sharpshooters.png

I must say, I like the Sharpshooters, and they have an important role in my Army, I have in every commander division. One Sharpshooters for the ability.

4.My strategy .png
4.My strategy .png (2.97 MiB) Viewed 386 times



And now my strategy for the game. I have two main objective that I want to archive!
The first is Richmond, I want to take his Capital and this in the beginning of 1862, but I know that Naturmix have a big Army in the north, Johnston and Beauregard. And because of this I will navel invade Norfolk and the city north of Norfolk to attack Richmond.
The Second objective is, to conquer the cities with the iron works. I know that Naturmix built iron works in Tennessee and Georgia.
Rome, GA
Nashville, TN
Memphis, TN
I think that with a army Grant and Sherman can take the cities. And additional I will try to cut of the supply, of the army that Naturmix send, against Grant and Sherman with cavalry.

The first victory for the union. For me this city Clarksburg is a small objektive.
First to ensure the safety for my railroads in the north and also to get a position to lunch raids against the enmy railroads in the south, that connect Virginia with the rest of the province of the CSA.

My second step is now to completely crush this small Division.

It's now early Aug, and Naturmix is threatening now Washington, D.C. But also he give me a perfect opportunity to take Richmond.

In the Early July the force of General Joseph E. Johnston cross over the river defeated R. Milroy and taken Fredericktown.
But this is a mistake, that I can use! :sherlock:

8. A good opportunity.png
8. A good opportunity.png (3.77 MiB) Viewed 305 times


Because now the forces from Naturmix are in the north and I think that no force is defending Fredericksburg.
With this opportunity I can perhaps take Richmond or threatening Richmond and also lift the threatening of Washington, D.C.

And Washington, D.C. is safe, I have enough forces to defend and attack simultaneously. But I have the big problem, that I don't have enough Generals, because of that most of my army have only one General.

My plan failed, I was hoping that Fredericksburg is undefended! I don't think, that i try to cross over the river, he has entrenchment and river crossing bonus. That's why I must try somenthing else.

10.My new strategy2.png
10.My new strategy2.png (4.05 MiB) Viewed 280 times


Ok, I have now a new strategy. I will try breakthrough in the north, my first step is to attack Longstreet with Irvin McDowell. I know that Longstreet he far a more capable defense general, but I must try with more man to atack him!

The second step is, to assemble my army in the north of Joseph E. Johnston and then to attack him without the his river bonus have have!

I know that I have don't enough generals and also they are really bad, that's why I try to attack him with more mens and guns.


11. Victory in a defeat.png
11. Victory in a defeat.png (3.17 MiB) Viewed 280 times


A Victory in a defeat. Yes, I have lost more men and the battle against Longstreet. But I have now the control of the city and my strength is far about him now. I will attack him a second time.

Because now that I will try to attack him a second time I have only Butler to secure the city Alexandria .
That's why I send him more reinforcement and also my Fleet that will support him and stop Beauregard if he want to cross over the river to Washington, I hope they coming in time. I'am worried that this was a mistake from me and give me a hard time.

Now this is perfect, only one area is under the control of the CSA that supply Joseph E. Johnston, if I can take it with George B. McClellan, I can possible inflict a heavy damage to Naturmix! I hope he doesn't know this and will go in my trap!

I send a small army from Washington to Montgomery south of Fredericktown, to ensure he will not cross over the river!

Now this will be my biggest plan! I will try to attack Longstreet with Irvin McDowell a third time! To take Manassas and cut of the supply from Beauregard! I have secured Washington with a army and with the flett, the north, west and south also with an army, I think when Beauregard try to attack any side I will defend it successfully!
Now everything depends on Irvin McDowell!
I think that Beauregard will take the city and not retreat, and Longstrett will be defended Manassas.

1861, Late Sept.
Now let's watch the situation in the east.

Finally Grant has spawn, but because Naturmix is really aggressive in Virginia, I don't have time to send a army over to Cairo, now I decided to get with Grant to Washington, to prepare a army with generals and units for him. After this I will attack the south of Cairo.

16.The east.png

In the far east, it seems a little bad for my the general. In the south I have a enemy army with a strength of 140 and the other enemy Price with a strength of 300. I hope I can destroy Benjamin McCulloch army with John C. Frémont, before he gets reinforcement.

Finally Grant is here with a really big army.

With this new army and with a good general, I have now two objective. The first one is to attack wtih Grant, Harper's Ferry and then go south and attack Joseph E. Johnston.

The second objective is to attack with Irvin McDowell again Longstress but this time I have much more strength!

This is really surprising. I never thought about this, that he will attack me. A really big mistake for Naturmix but a perfect opportunity for me, to cut of the supply of Beauregard.

Ok my strategy is, that I will attack on 3 areas, in the next 15 days.
My first attack will be in the north to attack Joseph E. Johnston with Grant, I give Grant Marines and I know he can do this.
My second attack will be on Manassas with the General Joseph K. Mansfield. I know that only the cavalry with the strength of 200 and also with a 35% penalty is in Manassas, I hope Beauregard will not withdrawn his army to Manassas.
The thrid atack is on Longstreet with Irvin McDowell.

When everyone is successfully, I have cut of the supply of Beauregard . Unfortunately he has taken alexandria, for now!

Joseph E. Johnston got away, at least I destroyed a little stack of cavalry and cavalry artillery, thank you Naturmix for this, because of this I can promote Grant! The next Step is to attack Beauregard with Grant.

Yes, Naturmix don’t make it easy for me, to encircle Beauregard. However, like I predicted Naturmix withdrawn Beauregard from Alexandria to Manassas. It was a good decision to send Irvin Mcdowell, and not Joseph K. Mansfield. The casualties for this are high.

I build many monitor, to secure the river in the land, but this was also a bad decision of me, because Naturmix told me that the City-class ironclad are built in Cairo, and now I need to move the monitor to Cairo. Dammit. As a excuses, this is now the second time I play the union.

I made a terrible mistake… I was thinking when I promote Grant to an army commander, then I get only minus 4 or 6 nation moral AND not 60! This really hurts me. However, for Grant it is worth.

I have now 3 objective. First objective is, that I will attack with Grant with a strength of 3800 Joseph E. Johnston.
The second is to send one army to Falmouth to secure the river and the third will take Winchester and then go south with the army.
