Talk:Battle of White Oak Road
|WikiProject Virginia||(Rated B-class, Low-importance)|
I removed Beauregard's name from the list of commanders because he was serving as second-in-command to the Dept. of North Carolina, South Virginia, South Carolina, Georgia, Florida and Tennessee at the time of the battle of White Oak Road. (Eicher, Civil War High Commands page 124) and the National Park Service's National Battlefield Protection Program does not list Beauregard as being in command.
You say 'Lee shifted reinforcements to meet the Federal movement to turn his right flank...', and I note that this comes from the Civil War Trust website. But the map confirms that it was Lee's left flank that they wanted to turn, to prevent him from heading South. Valetude (talk) 14:50, 12 April 2014 (UTC)
