As we move into 1864 My army is in good shape but the deck will turn against me. I now lead the Epic Points race by 34 to 29 but that is only because of drawing the "Name in the Papers" card.
I used Hail to the Chief to raise the 3rd Arkansas to Eager Elan and another card to bring them back up to strength of 5 bases.
I used "See the Elephant" to promote the 47th Alabama to veteran Status with seven Stands they will be a good unit to hold a key position with while the smaller Eager units manuver into attack position.
Attacking will be a lot harder now as I no longer have the Rebel Yell Card to clear the way. On the plus side the first battle I will have 4 dummy cards thanks to the "Priority Card."
I've added the Shenandoah Militia an 8 stand unit of Seasoned Recruits other than that my army is unchanged, apart from units getting smaller thanks to casualties and reduction (though less of that this time thank goodness)
Today I am mostly... - Planting a hedge and learning the Dead Man's Hand rules for tomorrows Conwy Wargames Club game. The other games will be WW2 naval and possibly a Napoleonic...
