|Pretend you are the President of the Confederacy. Who do you put in charge out in the West? ( Only territory on the Eastern side of the Miss.) Albert Sidney Johnston cannot be chosen. Also, you can make the decision based upon what we know now as well, you do not have to put yourself in Jeff Davis's shoes. But remember, you should still try and make a decision that is poltically savvy. For example, Cleburne would probably be an excellent choice, but he was not a Southener nor a West Pointer. Anway I have a hard time trying to decide. My natural inclination is to give it to a soldier like Cleburne but many people would have probably thought me nuts back in the day. I am interested to see who people choose.
