I am questioning if the CSA can trace a LOC by river through spaces
that are Union controlled....but not occupied by a Union SP
For example...Columbus,KY has a CSA force... in the fort
CSA still contols Fort St.Phillip/Jackson ...so Union naval control is
denied on the Mississippi south of Columbus
Union has PC's in New Madrid, Memphis, Humboldt, Lexington and Corinth
and also in Clarksville,Nashville, Franklin, Tuscumbia,Decatur,Columbia
The US does not have an SP in New Madrid, or Memphis ...just PC's
The question....can CSA trace LOC along the river through New Madrid,Memphis ??
Rule 8.11 seems to imply NO.....as it seems to require CSA path to go
through a friendly or neutral space along river....
However..rule 6.52 doesn't say that a Union PC ..without an SP ...can
block CSA riverine moves...
so actually 2 questions...
1. Does a Union PC (without SP) block CSA LOC when tracing along river ?
2. Can CSA use riverine movement along a river through a space with a
Union PC (without SP) ?
"It may be doubted whether so small a number of men ever employed so short a space of time with greater or more lasting effects upon the history of the world.” — Sir George Otto Trevelyan on the Battles of Trenton and Princeton
You are reading everything correctly.
1) 8.11 requires friendly or neutral spaces, so a Union PC blocks any Confederate LoC.
2) 6.52 does not, so a Union PC does not block Confederate Riverine Movement.
