Ole I agree with you.  I just finished the chapter on the battles at Dalton and Resaca .  It's amazing he did as well as he did.  Wheeler was off trying to find a cavalry fight so he could be as famous as Jeb Stuart, Sherman and Hooker hitting hin one way and then all of a sudden there is McPherson to the south at Recesa . 

It is interesting how Symonds points out how Lee always got praise from Davis and Johnston disappointment.  Johnston just can't get a break. 

I was amazed at how they used the railroad during these battles going up and down the state to meet and move troops.

Just think what if . . . Johnston had had the ability to see the troop movement from above the ground.  He would have seen McPherson's movement.
