Yeah, What ifs?- What if Thomas Jackson were alive to to mount an operation cocurrent with Lee's drive into Pensy. Jackson crossing the river in mid-June under cover of heavy mortars cast in the city of New Orleans and driving into Cincinatti, a wheel right with his army (leaving a foraging party in Ohio to send captured materials southward) and a drive on Pennsylvania from the west. The Federal army was committed elswhere at the time, not much of an effective force would have stood in his way. Yeah, what ifs?
