I don't understand this question:
the removal of general mcclellan represents a loss of the army and the potomac and a victory for the interfering politicans in washington
i know that mcclellan was replaced by grant because he was to hesitant to attack. but i don't understand this quesiton at all. i tried for an hour to try to understand it please help!
You're being asked to support the statement that McClellan's removal was a loss to the army and the Army of the Potomac. His removal was caused by the politicians. The implication is that a general in the field knew better how to fight a war than desk jockeys in Washington.
