And here's Tennessee. I see some really bad news in the form of a new artillery unit -- the USA 4th Artillery -- that is obviously on its way to join one of these Union forces. It is VERY tempting to send my corps out to intercept it and smash it, but this is very risky: I don't know where it's heading (southward into Tennessee, or eastward into Kentucky?), and since I get the sense that the Union wants to bring the forces that were just besieging Jackson back north I run the risk that my corps of 50,000 might encounter a Union army of 100,000.
But there's a nice alternative, which is to try to take my corps and barrel into Bowling Green again. Last time, I killed something like 8000 of the men in that army but lost the battle anyway, but it's my guess that because the Union has been forced to divert supplies and reinforcements to other armies and corps this one might not have been strengthened, and might be easily crushed this time. It's a gamble, but a logical one.
Plus, when that army defeated my corps one of my brigades lost its priceless (well, 50 Money is their price) Lorenzs, and I want them back. Losing my Lorenzs hurt me as much as it hurt a Roman legion to lose its eagle.
