Editor says, The problem wiith critics of the scenario for Part 5 is that they insist on the logistics restraints of a year previous when nothing had been pre-arranged. The overriding realty of the situation was that the abandonment of the Federal capitol by troops with a lack of organization has been a "breather" for both sides which permitted a complete revisal of offensive and defensive patterns, In this installment, the Grand Army of the Republic is gigantic, tuned to an offensive invulnerability by George McClellan, who has reclaimed Washington DC from the Rebels. And the complaints against that will be from people upset that a year's hiatus in the War made any changes at all to the Union Table of Organization.
