Jackson was horrible at the Seven Days, at least according to Foote ...

The battle of Glendale is where Jackson really dropped the ball. He failed to send his troops forward, which would have crushed two Union corps. It is said, that by that point in the campaign, he was thoroughly exhausted.

McClellan, himself, was off on some naval gunboat having dinner(during Glendale). He was oblivious to his army's well being.

I have read this book and it is very good. Anything Sears writes is worth reading.
