Can one concede the South's best opportunity to win the American Civil War was pushing for Washington immediately after First Manassas in July of 1861? With a quarter of the North's population and twice as much territory to defend, despite damnable greenness you'd think they'd have tried. Had Jackson controlled the whole army might he have recognized that fleeting opportunity for a quick knock-out?
