(and I hate "what if's").

Geezer: I don't hate them, it's when they get fanciful that they get tedious. Asking a what if question often leads to areas of discovery that wouldn't have been uncovered without the question. A "what if Johnston's intentions had been carried out" kind of question leads to exploration of the Union lines, Confederate movements and all sorts of questions about the whats and whys of what what actually did happen. Such discussions can be useful or useless, but all go toward understanding.
