All good points, there are probably scores more that can be made to explain victory vs defeat in each engagement of the war. Sherman's delay at finding the "hill" instead of the topography he expected delayed him enough to give Grant cause for concern. Confusion in the Civil War was often extreme and along with topography often contributed to the eventual outcome of many battles. Grant called for demonstrations in the center and got what he got. Christmas came early for him... only came once for Bragg.
