Re: Lew Wallace's Destination
- Mr. Keene:
Pittsburg Landing was to the army's left rear. That is exactly
opposite to a position on the right of the lines.
We are similarly diametrically opposed in our arguments.
P.S. Grant's memoirs state: "A number of attempts were made by the
enemy to turn our right flank, where Sherman was posted, but every
effort was repulsed with heavy loss." I guess that Sherman's
division was at the landing, if one uses your reasoning.
