Personally, I don't believe the quality of the federal officer command was bad at all...with the exception of the man at top that is.

Really, your wife invented it huh? Well, that is news, though it seems as though every girlfriend I have had has perfected this technique. Thank her for the both of us, won't you?

I'll have to look up those numbers on troop strength as well, it seems that authors differ on the force sizes in many campaigns including Antietam (36,000  I believe is one statistic, and one must remember that includes A.P. Hills division which did not arrive on the scene till the very end of the battle). Quite an achievement to fight an army to a draw with those odds, considering the fact the Conf. position was not all that great defensively, especially on the confederate left flank.
