Is Fort Monroe's hex (hex 5410) also a Swamp Hex? I ask because there is very little of the swamp symbol. If it is, a defending force would receive a four-column left shift (two for the fortress and two for the swamp terrain).

It looks like a deliberate feature rather than just "bleeding" in from an adjacent hex. I think it is swamp.

Fort Monroe is a swamp hex. That is quite deliberate. Otherwise, it would be 4 movement points from Richmond and reachable in one pulse.

The swamp also represents the very difficult approach to Monroe, which is why the CSA never tried to take the place historically.
