I'm in South Carolina for Thanksgiving with the family this week. We're heading home to Atlanta tomorrow. I'll likely get in late in the evening and then take and post my turn Sunday.

OK... back at it again!

Time is a bit tight, so there won't be quite as much editorializing as normal. (And with how things are going, for that I truly am thankful!)

As always, the event report...

Sieges...

Note what a difference the "excellent" artillery advantage made above. I wish I had strong siege artillery with all of these sieges - it would have made a big difference. Instead, they are progressing rather slowly.

A few small battles.... and we didn't get the best of them. Kicked out of Nashville...again... so much for the progress we were making. And out Navy appears to have been overwhealmed. Ooops. That shouldn't happen but I've been ignoring it completely.

Reinforcements - same as always. Made some progress on diplomacy. And the governor election results are finally in.

Battle reports.

The purists should note the small battle in Jackson. Though I won, I suffered more casualties. This report seems to show only the battle casualties (while the event report above includes the retreat losses).

Lost some weapons in Nashville - though nothing I can't live without.

And the last of the battle reports for the final skirmishes. Aparently there was little to no actual combat in either.

Looking at Nashville, the bigger issue is that he slipped a light division into Hatchie to cut my supply lines. That's really bad since it is now winter and movement slows way down.

The siege on Jackson continues. That will be fine through the winter, but I need to deal with the continuing supply situation.

The siege in Tallahassee struggles on. Without artillery, the swamps are pretty harsh on the troops.

I didn't bother to grab a screen cap, but I lowered the supply of several armies (especially AoP) for the winter to lower support costs and generate some cash. British and European diplomacy will both inch up just a bit.

With my spare iron and horses, I'll build another mint and another camp. I could do more if I had more labor.

I want to retake hatchie, but with Winter movement rules enabled movement is slowed across the map during December and January. Since he has a very light force, I'll try sending my divisions from Keyes' army separately. If just one of them makes it, I should be able to retake it and I stand a better chance of having someone get there by allowing them to each try independently.

And that's it...  Looking forward to getting 1862 behind me.  Though it won't be much kinder than this last year unless I can start focusing on building my forces instead of fighting his guerilla war.

What about naval combat? What 12 ships did you loose? Is there a naval forces screen?

sorry,
When you may get the chance tomorrow could you elaborate on the naval aspects of the turn?

What happens to the Army container if you do that? Seems like splitting up your forces effectively disbands the Army so do you lose the container?

In a word, no.

You can completely empty the container and it stays intact - UNLESS it comes into contact with an enemy unit. An empty container is destroyed by enemy contact. So I could have emptyied it entirely and left it there, but I didn't - no need subjecting myself to that risk. I actually left some troops within the army. That way, it could defeat any light units that just wandered in looking to convert an empty province or, if a real force came in, I could retreat to safety and keep the army.

I was actually in a hurry and didn't do anything with the Navy that turn. In the subsequent turn (which I took last night but haven't yet posted), I went ahead and got the Navy active again. I wish I hadn't skipped the Navy that first turn... but you'll see what's afoot after dinner when I get the latest turn posted.

The sieges continue. We're finally making progress in Jackson. Perhaps 2 more turns?

He came after me in Bowling Green? I really wasn't expecting any offensive by him through the winter. It was quite a fight and it looks like we held!

I also was able to chase him out of Hatchie, so my supply lines are again secure. [Note - a change was made during the beta so that supplies could not be traced through a province in unrest. The latest versions though are not compatible with our ongoing AAR game so supply will flow through those recently conquered provinces in our game. But be aware, in the future you won't be so lucky).

I took considerably more casualties in Bowling Green, but held. Looks like I picked up a Lorenz off of him.

I'll leave a division in Hatchie to guard it after finally retaking it. I am worried about AP Hill sitting so close to Jackson though just as we're making progress there. I'll try and send all of the various divisions from Keyes' army there to reinforce against a potential attack. I assume at least one won't make it which will leave a garrison force in Yazoo to prevent the light division in Aberdeen from cutting me off again.

Up north in Bowling Green, I'll just sit still for now, rest, and take on replacements. Thomas commands the division remaining in Hatchie.
