I dont remember where i read it but read somewhere that right after antietam when Lincoln replaced McClellan and announced his emancipation proclamation, that there was a rumor through the federal camps that McClellan was going to march on Washington and that rumor reached washington and put on a scare. I dont know if thats true but if you think about it... congress can legally tell you to relingish your command but in all reality you have the army not congress lol. What could they really do anyway?
