Bull Run Battle was lost by us not from want of combination, strategy or tactics, but because our army was green as grass. ... [It] was one of the best planned battles of the war, but one of the worst-fought. Both armies were fairly defeated, and whichever stood fast the other would have run.--General William Tecumseh Sherman
