It's been a few days since I have made a post. I have been visiting a close friend who lives in Middleburg, Pa., which is less tham an hour north- northwest of Harrisburg, Pa.
Since I live in Lynchburg, Va., I pick up Interstate 81 North at Staunton, Va. and follow it north to Harrisburg. This stretch of highway is a Civil War fanatics dream. It goes right up the Shenandoah Valley, thru places like Strasburg, New Market, Winchester; There is Stonewall Jackson's HQ, The Museum of the Shenandoah Valley, Cedar Creek Battlefield, just to name a few. As you get farther north there are exits to Harpers Ferry and Antietam, then in Pennsylvania there is Chambersburg, which the Confederates burned; From there it is only 30 miles to Gettysburg, and then up to Harrisburg, Pa.

Many of you may not be aware of this, but there is a new national Civil War Museum in Harrisburg, Pa. I visited it last summer and it is a nice Museum. It is still new and they are expanding the number of exhibits each year. It's worth a trip if you are near the area.
I have attached the link here www.nationalcivilwarmuseum.com

I should have mentioned that Lexington, Va. is also on Interstate 81, just 35 miles south of Staunton, Va.

Some of the attractions there is Stonewall Jackson's home and Memorial Cemetery; Virginia Military Institute, where Jackson taught and Washington and Lee University, which was called Washington College when Robert E. Lee became it's President until he died in 1870. Also, on the campus of W&L, there is the Lee Chapel and Museum, where Lee is buried.

As I said before, this stretch of Interstate 81 is a Civil War buff's dream.
It's all within just a few hundred miles of each other along the route.
Might make a great week of vacation for someone.

Issue #18. The battlefields remain quiet. I have an opportunity to get more guns to the armies and expand the infrastructure a little. I'm taking additional regions in Missouri, hoping to widen the front in the Western Theatre.

Issue #19

I'm going to have to attack that Union army encircling Fort DeRussy or I'm going to lose two full regiments. The Army of Mississippi, I'm afraid, is not up to the task; but we'll see.

Issue #20

I'm disappointed that the Army of Mississippi did not move north to challenge the siege.
I moved Bragg's Division north to cover the western part of Tennessee, because I expected the Army of Mississippi to be already move on north. Bragg moved first and I guess that threw the AOM off. So that's my mistake. I have a new plan for the next turn.

For Volume II, Issue 1, I decided to go with a two week report rather than two, one week reports. I will probably do that it in the winter months, and go back to reports for every week once the fighting begins again.

Volume 2, Issue 2

I should have destroyed that fort in the 1st turn of the game.
Those garrisons are now armed with decent weapons and moving to divisions.
More of Missouri is now in Confederate control. I'm hoping to divert some of the Union divisions away from the eastern theatre.

Volume 2, Issue 3

My Partisan unit was destroyed at the Central Mississippi River area.
However, the Partisan and Raider units together caused 40 damage to the Union economy.
You will notice that I bought a 12 lb. Howitzer for an artillery brigade. They were carrying a 6 lb. Howitzer.

Volume 2, Issue 4

I am currently building Siege Artillery and plan to add gunboats.
If I can survive out west until the artillery is complete, I plan to do some besieging of my own.

Volume 2, Issue 5.

The Yankees hit me hard everywhere.
I lost my first battle. I moved north to Confederate controlled Central Mississippi River, but General Thomas beat me to it, and I end up going on the offensive. We caused a lot of Union casualties, but weak flanks cost me this battle.

I haven't gotten a reply from anyone for quite awhile.
If you are enjoying this, let me know. It's hard to tell if this is interesting to people.
