War Between The States - Game Turns 77 to 80

Today we completed the 13/62 cycle, the last one for 1862.  Maybe the last one of the war?

The last Union build was to convert a 2-2 militia to a 2-3 infantry 
and a 10-1 garrison to a 10-3 infantry

The rebs are investing in cavalry...

It's winter time so General Butler plans to launch a campaign in the mountains.

The only reb activity is the siege of Wilmington.
It can't last too much longer and can't be reinforced.
Some extra troops are sent to reinforce Morehead however, just in case it gets interesting.

General Butler has success.
The way to Virginia is now wide open...
General Wilson also did his part in the Valley.

And then it is 1863.
The Union rebuild a river flotilla (that I must remember to put on the display)
and convert 8-1 garrison to an 8-3 infantry division.

The rebs build supply wagons and augment more cavalry.

The Confederates have two chances at victory.
Their first roll is a 2 which brings in Kentucky on their side.  
Kentucky is a huge liability for the Confederates.
For their second roll they need a 5 or a 6.
They get a 3.

The war continues.


I failed to give the initiative chit picks for 13/62.  They were 2, 3, 5 and 3 for the Union and 4, 5, 1 and 1 for the Confederates.
