1299Re: [TalkAntietam] fault for antietam???
- Mar 29, 2004Greetings Justin and all,
The idea of fault is an interesting one. It depends in large degree on how
broad a brush you use to paint it. It seems to me that in the very broadest
context of the word, the "fault" for Antietam would be with one person Robt. E.
Lee. If a considerably finer brush is used, Burnside could rightly be
criticized for his conduct at the bridge and immediately following the
crossing. But to expand that "fault" and try to pin the blame for Mac's not
obtaining an even more decisive victory on him, I don't think is justified.
