I could easily recognized the paper thesis. Though most northern generals were fools. You act as if these high and mighty generals were god's gift to the world. If they were such great generals why did they try to quickly achieve victory. They could have besieged Washington or New York instead of going to Gettysburg. At Gettysburg Lee was obviously not in top form and could not control his always quarreling genrals. He slaughtered many many men in that battle and while knowing the battle was lost when his first wave of troops were sent in. It was a mistake to mention the name of pitiful Jefferson Davis with these men.
