|I do, however, fault Lee for not using his influence with Davis to focus on the west.
Ole, this statement...I'm afraid I don't understand. I can see faulting Davis for many decisions made (especially not relieving Braxton Bragg earlier), caving into political pressure early by not concentrating forces - instead dispersing them over too wide an area, and lack of understanding the political situation in border states. Putting blame on Lee for the incompetence of Confederate commanding officers...I can't make the connection.
