There is the story of Forrest and Cheatham turning the air blue over who was going to cross the ford first .  Cheatham was well know for his profanity.  There is also the story of Polk following behind Cheatham when he is telling the men to give them hell.  Polk the Episcopal Bishop is saying Do what he says behind Cheatham. 


I agree Ole both North and South the leading Generals were not known for be profane .  They were careful of their language. 

Some were know for being pretty fast with the ladies , Hooker and VanDorn are two . 

Interesting question Pam.
