      Everyone may as well wade in on this.....Pemberton owed his loyalty as a
      MILITARY officer to his immediate superior, Johnston. It seems he may have
      been looking ahead to the end of the war and a political plum when he decided
      to superceed commands from the chain of command on his own initiative. It
      really doesn't matter if Vicksburg was well defended if his orders were to
      move out and attack. Davis' redress if he disagreed as C-in-C would have been
      with Johnston.
