If anyone is interested, here is a link to a google spreadsheet that captures the message from the above during the Gettysburg Campaign. I am using it as input to apply Machine Learning methods to develop a proof-of-concept in developing insights for a historical text. I plan to apply this method to thousands of documents, papers, diary entries, etc. For example, to extract insights and sentiment over time from Mary Chestnut's Diary.

The data is in raw form after I scrapped it from the War of Rebellion publications online.

I plan to publish the results in a free online book in the next few weeks.

My initial thoughts...
1. Hooker was not suited for high command (blinding flash of the obvious).
2. The frustration of Lincoln and Halleck for Meade not "bagging" the Army of Northern Virginia is palpable, but they treated Meade with kid's gloves.

Very respectfully your obedient servant. Cory

You can adjust cell size with your mouse, but to keep it simple I've changed the C column format to "wrap" the text. I reckon it should be easier to read now.

I find it really interesting that Hooker asks for the troops at Harper's Ferry, and his request is denied. As soon as Meade takes command, he is allowed to do what he wants with those same troops.

It really was an act of bureaucratic subterfuge by Halleck. Evidently, he was quite skilled at such endeavors.
