I read in the Civil War Interactive a description of Johnston as a great Civil War general.  I think the facts do not bear up to this characterization.  It took Lee to fix the mess during McClellan's Peninsular campaign.  I also think the fall of Vicksburg was largely due to Johnston's unwillingness to relieve Pemberton.  What do you think?
