Re: [civilwarwest] Re: Rosecrans at Chickamauga
- Well as shown in previous messages a move north of the River wasnt a good
option nor moving around Granger, but as a follow up what if Bragg had sent
Wheeler or Forrest on a Raid against Bridgeport, or even had Roddey move over
and join in as well. I think this presented the best option in the aftermath
- Well, there's Robert E. Lee, who was always volunteering to not only
send troops, but even send himself out west......

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.
