Not going to comment, just going to cut and paste. :eek:



You scored as General Nathan Bedford Forrest.

Perhaps the finest cavalry general of the war, you've been called a genious by historian Shelby Foote. A down and dirty fighter, you rarely lose and truthfully, well, you're more than a bit scary...

One of Grant's favorite generals, your skill in battle caused Lincoln to revise his opinion of cavalrymen. You hunted down Lee at Appomattox and effectively ended the war. You're also (no offense) a vainglorious jerk who will later act on your conviction that the only good Indian is a dead Indian. There's no shame in seeking therapy, you know...

Q. Do you deliberately disobey orders to hold off attacking until you are reinforced by another part of a 3 pronged advance?

The good news is, you're considered a person of scrupulous honor and well liked by no less a personage than Abe Lincoln. The bad news is you're pretty much inept, the worst high-ranking general of the war. Cheer up, though; you might have a future in politics.

as with manyl battlefield detectives, it is opinion, not fact,. Undoubtedly many bullets and casings were taken as suveniors, preventing accurate analysis. the record is clearer but not conclusive. Id guess more towards 75%
