According to this legend John Pope was an army commander who was prone to make one boneheaded mistake after another, a general who was totally outclassed by his renowned opponents, and a general who afterwards lied to cover up his own incompetence. One can't discuss the magnitude of Lee and Jackson's achievement in winning the Second Manassas Campaign without addressing the competence of the man whom they defeated.
Because of the fact that their victory was achieved by beating a man who for all intents and purposes demonstrated himself to be a second-rate general, Lee and Jackson's achievement—despite its far reaching consequences—has always attracted less attention than have Lee's campaigns that immediately preceded and followed it, The Seven Days and Antietam, respectively.
That was not the situation in December The Japanese outwitted us. The fact that they needed a few lucky breaks in order to pull it off is not at all unusual. Dramatic victories almost always require a few bits of fortuitous good luck because any daring military enterprise is a very complex operation, fraught with many dangers, any one of which could nullify its ultimate success.

When Lee suggested that he advance on August 29 to relieve pressure on Jackson, Longstreet resisted, insisting it would be better to fight on the defensive. When several Confederate brigades adjusted their positions that night, Pope mistakenly took the movement for the beginning of a retreat. That night, a crushed Pope ordered his army to fall back across Bull Run toward Washington. But as McClellan had the unwavering support of the soldiers, and Lincoln needed a speedy reorganization of Union forces, he left McClellan in command.
Pressing his advantage after the northern Virginia campaign, Lee launched an invasion of the North, crossing the Potomac into western Maryland on September 5.
