  4. Who was In Charge?

    do you think that Sherman was specifcally chosen d/t Grant knowing that he would not likely take action on the reports of the Confederate Army being nearer.But felt if McClernand was in charge he-McClernand would investigate these"demonstrations" which would lead to bringing on an engagement.?

  10. Bragg at Corinth

    do you know what he means by "reduced to the Fabian policy"?

    in basil duke's history of morgans calvary he writes that they rode upon a section of troops dressed in blue. and when a platoon was ordered to cautiously approach them they saw 'a little man flourishing a portentous saber and directing movements with off hand eloquence.they forbore fire as they did not understand what he said.from his volume,imprecatory sound of the language determined to be french.and from louisiana.this group of soldiers were members of Col Mouton's 18th LA.Their uniform cost them dearly before the fight was over."
  12. Missing Cavalry?

    Absolutely..from the desperation they were experiencing with loss of manpower and ammunition you would have beleived that every weapon and man would be used and even arm the horses if they could have.
  13. Missing Cavalry?

    yes Shiloh is 2 volumes..I ordered it and got 1 shiloh and 1 atlanta campaign(was invoiced the 2 Shiloh ones but) I just have horrible luck purchasing anything from internet.
  14. Missing Cavalry?
