Long story short, Osterhaus is claiming credit for suggesting the flanking attack ... but not only is he lying, he's covering up for the fact that he threw his men in piecemeal ... when he was doing anything at all. Most of the day he sat idle and unengaged, just like he did at Champion Hill. The fact that McClernand couldn't recognize how incompetent Osterhaus was nearly doomed Grant's operations against Vicksburg.
