Twilight zone, best describes all what if situations really. And here's a thought we haven't seemed to touch on the what if. Grant never going west in this what if. If we say that everything elese happened as it actually did, but Grant instead went south, what's to say he would have gone west? Had he instead been east he might have joined Lee, Jackson, and Longstreet in the Army of Northern Virginia, might have even replaced Jackson as corps commander following Jackson's death. Hellcat, Now that is a thought! Say the ANV goes to three or four Corp's. before Chancellorsville. Lees Corp Commander's is Jackson, Longstreet, John B. Gordon and Grant. A.P.Hill stays with the Light Division. I moved Gordon up a little faster.
