    On #15--"Nothing but hospitals and dead bodies--as long as Sherman pursued"....there was the "pursuit order" so this part of the report "overlooks" the fighting at fallen timbers.on the 8th.

    do you think think that Prentiss' action toward Peabody was in a way trying to cover up he was not "doing his job " as not being on the look out for the confederate army..and Peabody was listening to all info tat was coming into camp? Also,wonder if Prentiss ever read Shea's book.....
