And here I'll have to take off after my good friend Johan Steele.

Jefferson C. Davis is almost always referred to in Johan's posts as the "Union dirtbag." I figure that's a bit unfair.

If I'm a general with a pontoon bridge upon which I've just crossed a raging Ebenezer Creek, I'm going to take that bridge with me before Wheeler uses it to cross after me.

I'm always amused with Sherman's reply when asked why Davis took up the bridge when he did: "I suppose he wanted it." (Or something like that.)

We don't know how many slaves left behind were killed by Wheeler's men -- or even if any were killed. We can be quite certain that all were trundled back to their masters. And J.C. Davis is the criminal?

Sorry. That dog don't hunt.
