would have fallen had Bragg pursued Rosecrans
retreating army. You would have had soldiers too far
from ammo and reserves to lead an effective attack.
Unless a pursuit is planned in advance it was too
risky. I think that Bragg did the only practical
thing he could do.

If you see no reason for giving thanks,

time [and now to a point] own incredible chunks of land so all I can
