Thanks, younglobo.  I wasn't aware of the song, but I think I saw the CD possibly at the Pea Ridge gift shop.  I was vaguely aware Patton utilized a Confederate general's tactics, but I had no idea which one.  Thanks for the information, Mr. Sailhorst.

I just thought of a great movie scene.  In the retreat from Shiloh, when Forrest's regiment charges a Yankee brigade.   Forrest charges by himself, and as he falls back, he uses a Union soldier as a human sheild; picking him up by the throat.
