Recruitment - more ironclads are ordered, along with some hospital and signal units.
East - Joe Johnston snuck into culpeper and it appears some cavalry sent Sumner's division running???? they captured the depot at Manassas. luckily Sumner's troops retreated there and will assault and re-capture. how a few cavalry regiments sent a division scattering is beyond me, but that's the wonders of this game. the rest of the army waits at the albmarle depot to await the outcome of our ops along the peninsula. i figure Johnston can go north, but i'll have two divisions standing in his way before he gets to DC. if he goes to Harper's, the army might have to follow him. however i dont think he's going to invade with only two divisions. with the union army sitting two regions from Richmond, i dont believe he'll be able to pull Bearegard north towards DC. that would only leave Jackson standing in the way of the full US Army making an assault into the capital. i sent Butler from the fleet to take Norfolk with one division, Burnside will make a move up the peninsula to Richmond. i think he's probably got a division in the city, which i hope to pin down. either he will have to let Richmond remain under siege, or move some troops to relieve the capital. that should free up McDowell for movements next turn. the east is touch and go at the moment. i have a feeling of impending disaster, but if it works, i might be in a good position.
West - US Grant shows up in Cairo and is ordered to take Morell's division to TN. he will meet up with the rest of the army there and plan an assault on Nashville next turn. Lyons takes over the other half of the army and McClellan is moving to Bowling Green to take command of the next army.
At East Front, the fedral has joined all his forces at Albermale depot (VA), but the rail lines to there is being cutted at manassas, taked for my cavalry, and at Culpeper, where Johnston´s force (2 divisions) is being thenched. So, I hope that the federal offensive will be stopped by my circle of troops and by the mud. The federal navy has appear at James river with troops embarked. I have 2 divisions at Richmons and I´m creating 1 new divisions, so, I will have 11 divisions at eastern theather, but I have not enough command point for they could be well commanded. Antway, I hope that with the corps formation at spring62 I could beat the federal troops and send them to north again.
At west front, the federlal already have 5 divisions, but I only have 2 divisions defending Nashville, because the other 3 divisions at Memphis have not general for form them. I have received some generals and I send them to9 Memphis for form a new force and defend the north of Tennessee. I have received to A.S.Johnston and he is the new commander of Nashville force. I will send to him the new HQ built at Richmonf, for form a new army at West and send to him a new division, for defend Nashville with 3 divisions.
At Transmississippi front, I have destroyed the Fayetteville depot and I retreat to Fort Smith. I only want can defend Little Rock, the only important objective at Transmississippi front. With the winter, Lyon could not advance to Arkansas, moreover with all the depots blown at his way.
I build 1 brigade (2 Inf+1 Cav) and 4 art.bty at North Carolina, 1 shapshooter and 1 cav unit at South Carolina and 3 militia at east front, for forn 1 new division at Richmond. I already haven´t recruit surplus, so, I should wait to end of year for build new divisions. So, I will have to end of year 11 divisions at East Front, 6 divisions at West Front and 1 division at Transmississippi Front, all full, totalling 18 full divisions. It´s well, but I haven´t enough command points for fight with enough guarantees for victory, so, I need maintain the defensive yet.
