      Correct, Harry, not that you need my agreement. But they “hoped” for help. It wasn’t coming but they sure hoped for it.

      I agree that time is what the Confederacy needed, but not hope for aid.  Outside aid was never much of a possibility.  Time and the corresponding effect on Northern morale was the Confederacy’s most crucial ally.

      Napoleon said that ground can be retaken but time cannot. JEJ was trying to hold on to time as that is what the Confederacy was made of. It needed time to survive, to hope for aid. JEJ seemed to comprehend this pretty well.
