By the way, Stonewall Jackson was the ablest fighting general of them all. No moss grew under that man. His loss at Chancellorsville was a tremendous blow to the South. Jackson & Lee together were an almost unbeatable combination on the battlefield.
The guys that really ticked me off in that war were Sherman & Sheridan. They both knew how to win battles, that's for sure, but I don't like 'em. Never did, and probably never will.
They were hell on the South, and they were hell on Indians afterward. I am sorry that Crazy Horse did not put a final end to both of them.
