Good point, Orphan. But, like luck, can the will of the people be considered a characteristic of a general? In the days when a king also led his troops into battle, it might have been a major factor. Grant, Lee, and others could influence the will of the people only by winning.

Copperheads were gaining political power in the north until the summer of '63 when the northern citizen began to notice that a victorious end was in sight.

Just a thought.
