I seemed to have read someplace that Albert S. Johnston, who was serving the US Army in California when the Civil War broke out, was offered a position second only in rank to Winfield Scott.  If true, was this before or after R.E. Lee was offered command of Union forces?  I think A.S. Johnson resigned on April 9th, 1861.

Can anyone help me out on this one?
