      Hello Group:
      With all the Pemberton critiques to date considered, may I offer these
      thoughts:
      He was not the first overly confident (some might prefer arrogant)
      General, Blue or Grey.
      He did rather well holding Vicksburg despite previous lapses.
      He was up against one helluva persistent General.
      He served out the balance of the War as a desk-job light Colonel in
      Richmond which tells something of the heart and character of the man.
      Just idle thoughts on the preceding posts.
      Heros
