I've been re-reading Prof. Dew's book about the Tredegar Iron Works and some of the nuance is clearer to me now than it was when I first read the book back in December. On first read, I was left with the impression that Tredegar and the other arms manufacturers in the South did a good job, and the CSA armies did not fail for lack of needed guns and ammunition. But is that the general consensus of the experts and qualified observers at CWT? Similarly, most of what I have read about Gen. Gorgas here has been highly complimentary, but is there a critique of Gorgas that blames him for some of the failures of the CSA armies? I'd also welcome any suggestions for further reading on this subject.
