Battle of Kenawha: End

Summary: Coward like, the Union soldiers fled back to their proverbial mommies in the face of our victorious Valley Corp soldiers. Casualties for the cause included only 251 soldiers, most of whom were injured as a result of running to catch up to the retreating Yankees. We did manage to captured 1187 Union troops and one brigade worth of Enfield rifles.

1. Gen. Walker will proceed with the attack into West Virginia.


Writing as a southern patriot, shouldn't that be 'Western Virginia'?

See that is what happens when I jump out of character for so long. I think in previous posts it was always western Virginia.

Late July 1863 Strategy

1. I am going to move Gen. Walker south towards Nashville. If I can retake the capital, it will be a boon to the Confederacy.
2. Gen. Lee will continue to rest in Cincinnati.
3. Gen. Jackson is almost ready for another battle. It looks like the Union is moving in from above. The question is whether they try to capture Little Rock.
4. With the Union seiging the forts in Fredericksburg before moving on, I will continue to rest Gen. Weisiger in Richmond.

Forgive my ignorance, but what size is Gen. Walker's force? More importantly, what size is the force likely to oppose him, if any?

Lee is resting because?

Thanks for keeping up the AAR, it is fun to read.

Turn 42 (late July 1863):

SecWar Report:

Battle of Vicksburg: End

Summary: The Union hordes flooded down the Mississippi like spring time rains out of the snowcapped Yankee mountain ranges. Gen. Jackson deftly manuevered his forces to lure the reckless boys in blue into a trap. Using the swampy ground around the river to restrict the Union's advance, he was able to dig in and repulse the Federal's decisively. Casualties were heavy on both sides, due primarily to misinterpreted orders that left all of the Confederate artillery out of the fighting. Gen. Jackson, smelling the Federal defeat in the air, launched a broad-based counteroffensive which resulted in the destruction of a Union artillery battery and the capture of a Yankee cavalry brigade that was covering the cowardly retreat. Total casualties amount to 14,024 crying Yankees killed, wounded, and captured; and 9177 brave boys in butternut who made the ultimate sacrifice for independence. We also captured from the battlefield 3 brigades of Springfields, 1 brigade of Whitworths, 1 brigade of Minie rifles, 1 brigade of Lieges, and 1 brigade of the highly coveted Spencer repeaters.

Walker has an army with him, it is probably around 15 brigades if I had to guess from memory. The opposition is minimal anywhere north of Buell's army in the Mississippi river. The only problem he will have is if Buell pulls back to defend Nashville. Lee is resting because he was shellacked a couple of months ago. Being so far in Union territory, his reovery has been slow. In hindsight, I should have pulled him down to Tennessee to R&R, but now he is blocked in by Union forces in Wheeling and Cincinnati.
