    Do You Know Grant?

    i was referencing Grant titles by Smith,Kaltman and McFeely for help but had to go to grant himself for a couple...Had to answer in bits and pieces in between work..cant believe somebody else didnt jump in and finish before I found the answers.

    Shelby Foote

    I wanted to let you know that this evening 1-7-19 @8:30 CST on Mississippi Public Broadcast TV will air an 1983 interview with Mr Foote. Also I heard an interview on radio while driving--Could not write man's name down...but the topic was on mississippi authors in early 1900's. The tale goes that Shelby Foote got into a bit of trouble in school and was suspended a week .His parents sent him to this gentleman's fine home and he then sat him down in his library and told him his punishment was to stay there and read the entire week. ..I didnt know where else to place this topic.

    #7---False..yes Grant did suffer with terrible migranes but alcohol was never used. He opted for mustard plasters and treatment like this.The migrane attacks did render him down and out which may have fulled the talk of drinking to point of passing out..but it was the migranes that laid him out.Also ,he contracted malaria in 1852 while in Isthmus of Panama and this condition also puts one to bed and even after"recovery" flare ups do return.So either medical condition or both arising at the same time would really prostrate him to sick bed.

    Most important times

    Right..I didnt put all this in my comment.I guess Grant thought he didnt want that valuable timepiece to become lost/captured.

    Savannah to Memphis most likely on the Stage Road...now highway 64 somewhat follows this route.

    Nixon at Shiloh

    one would have to beleive the scant food supply had to affect the mental status of the soldiers..who were not in the best of nurtitional health even before the march from Corinth in the cool rain and mud. just this physical activity and trying to stay warm would require meals and they just didnt have ..they couldnt rely of their "future meals"on board the train to be available.Men are greatly influneced by their stomachs. so this had to affect the mental status of each.dont you think?

    Nixon at Shiloh

    Lew Wallace's march

    it does read as if the writer knows the future days ahead better than the officers located there...by commenting that a battle is imminent..they were thinking to use pittsburg landing as a staging area for approach of their goal at Corinth.And mentioning the Federal troops are Sanguine a victory..he writes of the battle all ready won....maybe this was very hopeful thinking to be used to put all who read that there will be a victory and sorta "overlook" the immense casulities that are coming??????This report is very puzzling.
