      Pattie....Main reason why Hood got the job....Hood campaigned for the
      job behind Johnston's back...telling Davis that he would attack until he
      could get Sherman away from Atlanta....Just the words Davis wanted to
      hear, because he was fed up with Johnston not trying to stop Sherman's
      advance towards Atlanta.....And yes you are right...Davis had bungled
      the handling of Confederate armies in the west the whole war....and he
      deserves much of the blame as well..
