I too would like to speak with Buford. He was a solder's general who looked after his men. He was also an old dragoon who realized other than scouting and screening calvary was most effective dismounted just using the horse for swift movement of troops.

In regard to taking care of himself I had pneumonia about six years ago. My physician (who is also into history) told me then that without antibiotics I would have suffered the same fate as Buford. 

Would also have like to talk with my g-grandfather who was with Sherman on the MTTS. I would like a common soldiers view point . I have 2 of his letters but other than small talk and the marching ond his work as a pioneer they do not offer alot of info.
