(What If) Major General U.S. Grant is ordered to march his army to Pittsburg Landing. Once there, he is to make camp and await Major General Buell's Army of the Ohio. Confederate General A.S. Johnston is determined to strike Grant before this link up can occur. He chooses Jackson, Tennessee as the place to make his move. If successful Johnston will become the hero of the South and Grant will be disgraced. If however, failure should be the result, Tennessee will be lost and the southern cause may become lost with it.
