Although I've already address the supposed "excess troops" issue
elsewhere, I'd like to ask Mr. Rose to offer three examples where
Civil War generals offered to send their forces elsewhere for someone
else to command (as opposed to being ordered to do so).
After all, if his request is so reasonable, we should be able to cite
other examples quite readily.
