What do you feel is the biggest blunder and/or most "important" missed opportunity in the Civil War, Eastern or Western Theater, particular army, general, etc.? There were many, depending on where your sympathies lie!

For me, a major blunder was when Hooker left the flank of the 153PA in the air at Chencellorsville, just begging Jackson to take the opportunity he used to maximum effect. Close behind that was Hooker's removal of the artillery from Hazel Grove at Chancellorsville, thus making it easier for the Confederates. I know that's a little specific, but I am a little sympathetic to the 153PA.

Any thoughts, folks?
