Turn 43 -
Winter has arrived in places. Just in time, I took control of Springfield.
Fall of Springfield
Robert Howe went on the offensive before I could collect the necessary forces to take him down.
Battle of York
He's moving out north now, so I'll fill in my forces behind him to block any retreat and let him sit out the winter outdoors unless he can find a city of mine to take.
In Virginia, I'm forced to try and assault Fredrickburg and Charlotte this turn, since I can't afford to sit out in the snow down here. Ft. Criswell fell this month, so once I gain these two cities, I'll control all the towns in the southern colonies.
Turn 44 -
Both Fredricksburg and Charlotte fall this month.
Battle of Fredricksburg
Battle of Charlotte
Robert howe retreats to York before I can capture it, so Leslie will retreat his forces to Lancaster to winter across the river.
At Ft. Edward, Gates finally collected the random units in the area and laid seige to the fort. I'm hoping they can hold out for a while since the winter is here, maybe Gates will pull back and give me some room.
Turn 45 -
Once again, Montreal is under seige, but I should hold out without too much trouble, although a force outside the city was defeated.
Battle of Montreal
Gates' army took a lot of damage from the winter weather. If he doesn't fall back this month, I will sortie and try to defeat his weakened force.
There is no other action this turn, as winter has really set in.
Turn 46 -
After forgetting about the seige for a few months, I finish off Loganton.
The Colonists pull back from both Montreal and Ft. Edward. I also receive some new militia regiments.
No other action this month.
Turn 47 -
No action or movement this turn.
Turn 48 -
The colonials slip behind my army in Springfield and retake Hartford I should be able to trap that army there though, so I'm not too worried about it. Winter is nearly over, so I'm planning out what I'll do this year.
