Congrats, Sir, and my thanks for handling the "grunt work" which I, for one, do not have the knack for.

I too have to ask. That's not the impression I got from Forrest's statements at the time of the surrender at Ft. Donelson.

As you seem to have a much superior knowledge here, can you give some details of Civil War tactics, how were assaults conducted and how was the defense setup? Often I hear that the at least initial assault tactics simply mirrored that of thew Napoleonic times: -close in -fire a volley -attack with ...

I would like to put in a shameless plug for a book I wrote a number of years ago about my great-grandfather who served as a medical officer in the Army of Tennessee. It is a unique story and you can read the kindle version for free at You can find it at:

I'd like to see that. It's always about Gettysburg and the only thing that's been produced in my lifetime about the western theatre were "Gone with the Wind" and a very bad movie about Shiloh about 50 years ago. I've been waiting all my life for a decent movie on Shiloh and one on Chickama...

If you've been to Gettysburg, then I would recommend the western battlefields. Put Shiloh at the top of your list, then the battlefields of the Atlanta campaign. If you have the time, though, I would add Vicksburg, Franklin, and Murfreesborough to the list.

Daniel gives a lot of time and pages to the Sunken Road in his book.

Something I came across about a year ago brings something into the mix on Banks. I'm afraid I can't cite the source as it was one of the several books on the Red River Campaign and was loaned to me by a friend. Shouldn't be difficult to find the info, though. It seems that during the time leading up...
