It makes sense now there was no Hornets nest until the years following the war. It was named by the confederates. I assume the union veterans pick up the name over the years as well as historians. In Grant's mind Prentiss and the other were just engaged in some wooden area.

The sunken road was sunk but the Hornets nest was creation in peoples minds.

I don't think Prentiss was anymore a hero the the other Div Commanders trying to hold their line that fateful day. He was just the best promoter out of the bunch.

I have concerns about Reed what little I know about him.


Off to ponder....
