OriginEdit

A career U.S. army officer, Johnston served in the Mexican-American War and Seminole Wars, and was one of the highest-ranking officers in seniority to lead the Confederate States Army. Although he reached the position of Quartermaster General, he resigned from the U.S. military when his home state of Virginia seceded.

Johnston’s tactics were more defensive, as he would notably withdraw from most conflicts due to the sheer size of the Union’s troop movements; his only offensive measure resulted in a serious injury and replacement by Robert E. Lee. Confederate President Jefferson Davis viewed Johnston as a coward in command, temporarily withdrawing him until Johnston resumed control and surrendered the Carolinas to Union generals Grant and Sherman.

EffectsEdit

User becomes indecisive and will easily back down from confrontation. They would rather take up a safer position they feel more comfortable with, regardless of it being a very detrimental decision. When near the end of a conflict or argument, the user may just give up their cause entirely and serve all their work and struggles to the enemy.
