I have just started to re-read Larry Daniel's "Shiloh", a book I read some years ago and have come across something I missed first time and would like to know more. Daniels says that at the beginning of the war when Lee declined command of the U.S Army ( we all know that story) the position was then offered to A.S.Johnston who also refused. I have been unable to find any other reference to this or maybe I've read it somewhere else and not retained it. Anybody out there know the story?
