And when, exactly, are we playing Churchill again?
There is also a "Rule" which has been agreed upon by the designer (not in the rule book) to punish the player who moves their scout to the last place available behind St Louis. This is called the "stay back" strategy I think. You'll have to look in the forum for the agreed upon penalty, but I seem to remember it's losing one good per day you can't move back. There were two or 3 ideas mentioned but I can only remember this one.
Ohhh, it's a lot worse than that! From the publisher:
1- Discard all the Encountered Characters you have recruited since the beginning of the game. (you just keep in hand your 6 starting Characters).
2- Discard all the resources and Indians you have.
