I was reviewing the communications or lack thereof between Grant and Rosecrans at Iuka, and I honestly cannot see where Grant ever approved a plan of battle for Iuka. Grants communications to Rosecrans seems to indicate he was hesitant because he was worried about his back door. Rosecrans communications to Grant seem to assume that they were to pitch headlong into the enemy with abandon.

it’s almost like Rosecrans had a different conversation playing in his mind.
