Bill Zorn's take on that was that the Southern generals used to talk so slowly, that the battles were over before they were able to complete giving their orders!
If I get my hands on it, I'll read the book Steve Rich recommended. I read Bruce Catton's "A Stillness at Appomattox". Even by the standards of books on war - and I have read a few - I found that very sad. What an awful tragedy it was.
