This chapter describes the organizational difficulties that plagued the Federals' advance. Despite finding a weak point in Jackson's line, Sinclair's men were unable to exploit their good fortune because of the lack of support and difficult terrain. The advance was hampered as regiments separated from brigades, and companies from regiments amidst all the confusion and disorder. Ironically, several Confederate regiments faced similar problems defending their weakened lines and launching counterattacks.
