"Foolishness" indeed.  Stonewall and Zollicoffer were also lost by getting too close to the action.  My question is, What was the philosophy of the time regarding where the commanders should be?  Wasn't that another aspect of the ACW, a change in philosophies (ie: demonstrating your courage, etc)?  I'm clueless about this topic so I am interested in what anyone has to say.  Perhaps this should be another thread but I wouldn't know what to call it.  I hardly know how to word the question.
