Confederate General Edward Porter Alexander proposed in 1863 that the Confederacy abandon the idea of trying to protect Confederate territory that was too far away. This would of course mean places such as Vicksburg. Alexander was not the first general to propose this. In February of 1862, General Braxton Bragg believed that a "compact" area of vital places be set for protection. Both he and Alexander believed that a "compacted" Confederacy would create a stronger and more dangerous opponent for the North.
