I highly recommend an excellent article in the May 2012 issue (Vol 14 #1) of North and South Magazine,  “From the West . . . Where the War Was Decided,” by Richard M. McMurry. A lot of people think the American Civil War was wonin the Eastern Theater. This article will give you pause for reflection and perhaps even re-conisderation of a popular notion unsubstantiated by the facts.

When you outnumber the enemy on the battlefield and still lose the battle, it is simply dishonest to ascribe your defeat to the foe’s ‘overwhelming numbers and resources.’
