  4. 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."
  6. 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.

  16. Epic Hike 2018 Suggestions

    You are absolutely right...one has NOT hike Shiloh unless they have crossed Dill Branch..if there is some water..brownie points!!because until you've done this one can not really ascertain what the soldiers had to traverse through in the battle action.the tour road gives the visitor the total different idea of the ground that was involved throughout both days of fighting..

  23. Wisconsin photos vis-à-vis Shiloh

    yes its good to have friends in high places...got the main historian to open up and give me a tour! it was great!until he mentioned they had just taken down all their Shiloh displays(i asked him would he put it all out again if i gave him a heads up if i every return)it is worth going up there also go on to the capital and then jim can take you to the cemetery where the confederates are buried..but the monument will be gone...it has fallen prey to "pc". did get to see the cannon captured at Shiloh!
