Project: revisit the Patterson affair

I notice that David Detzer is vigorously defending General Robert Patterson in his new book Donnybrook; will see if there is enough detail there to compare and contrast with Russel Beatie's painstaking case against Patterson laid out in Army of the Potomac, V1. I long favored Patterson in the Bull Run matter until Beatie worked me out of my position.

Fun, fun, fun.
