Charlesonmission (USA) v Seraphim (CSA)
Last Update: E Jan 62
awaiting L Jul 62 orders; comparisons are from L Apr 62
83 NM v 116 NM (was 92 NM v 101 NM)
43 v 42 VP/turn from cities (was 37 v 47 VP/turn)
920 v 1243 total VPs (was 522 v 702)
76,411 v 77,277 combat losses (was 31,458 v 34,734)
SUMMARY: As you can tell, Charles has been very active since the last update. He's taken Island #10, Ft Pulaski, moved some of the Savannah force to take Augusta GA, up the river to take Garysburg NC, took Mobile and some of the outer forts there, took Meridian MS, had to defend Denver, tried and failed to take Manassas, took Tallahassee, took Ft. Henry/Donelson, dealt successfully with a large rebel invasion of Iowa and Kansas, took Little Rock, and so on.
However, not all his ventures have met with success, as the NM totals show: He got chased out of Augusta, got crushed at Garysburg, lost Meridian MS, failed to take Corinith, lost New Mexico, to name a few. Although he's gained on VPs from cities, he's had heavy losses in doing so - but has inflicted many as well. In fact, it's a bloody game.
Still, Charles is ahead of most other Union generals in other games as far as territory taken/threatened. Seraphim has done well, especially lately, of successfully reacting to these incursions and repelling them, or even defeating them. However the loss of Mobile is a blow, and Charles is perhaps 10 turns away from splitting the South in two, should he chose to make it a priority. Richmond is far from safe, as he can land there anytime he wants since he controls both Ft. Monroe and Norfolk.

Union Crushed at Garysburg! Jackson Returns with a Vengeance!
April 2, 1862 - 43,700 graycoats hit Foster's 18,500 [ PWR = 2669 v 562 ] and dealt out revenge for the previous defeat there, causing 12,895 losses and 17 regiments destroyed, mostly due to a hasty retreat ordered by Gen. Foster. The confederates lost 6,300. "They just appeared out of nowhere," said one Yankee. "We didn't even have time to strike camp. The officers told us to fire and run, pretty much."
[ +6 CSA NM ]
In related maneuvers, Stuart retook Edenton and other CSA forces retook Columbia, leaving Foster's corps halfway between Norfolk and Goldsboro, which Meagher's forces took, depriving the CSA of yet another key depot, although they did recapture the one at Garysburg, now severely depleted.
In Kansas, Forrest's men left Leavenworth and escaped south. Magruder's men left Council Bluff, headed northwesterly.

McClellan Takes, Then Loses, Columbus GA!
April 1 - The Army of the Potomac surprised the garrison at Columbus GA, taking the city, but then retreated across the Appalichicola River into Alabama when two confederate divisions under Holmes and Hokes arrived. Atlanta seems saved, but Montgomery seems very exposed.
Grant and Two Corps Attack Beauregard in Manassas!
Finding the CSA with a corps in Manassas that is closed to being trapped, Gen. Grant's Union Army sprung upon it, hitting it from three sides, as corps of Milroy came from Culpeper, and Whipple came from Leesburg. However, Bory's Boys (8,293) were well-entrenched, and held off the 25,275 Yanks [ PWR = 1483 v 495 ] The Union lost 3,444 and the Confederates lost 2,982. The CSA position is now even more exposed. It may pull out, or wait for reinforcements, or simply defy the Yanks to hit them again.
