(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.

The situation is an interesting one. The Union has early numbers, but since it's "on the march" it's supply trains are off map. They can try to rush the Rebels while they have few brigades up, but the attack will falter if your regiments go low ammo. If the Union sits North of the river and awaits the Southern advance, it will be a bloody affair, but perhaps no more decisive.
