      Exactly. <grin> I've seen a rather understanding set of posts
      detailing the problems of the Confederate command at the time, and
      those posts stand in stark contrast to the hypercriticism directed
      at Grant and Sherman at the same time.

      If Grant and Sherman were as incompetent as some think, then
      Johnston was in no danger.
