I think you have it about right, Fan. Sherman wanted an agressive "damned fool," riding against Wheeler. However, Kilpatrick proved to be too much of a damned fool and Sherman had to figure out a way to admit that he was really wrong in asking for him. He might have been better served by a Wilson or a Custer. Kilpatrick was just too problematic.
