Three very opposite men, Lee the Gentleman, Jackson the religious fanatic and Forest the savage! Who could have stopped them? lol
That's assuming they could have worked well together. The question is could they have worked well together. We do know that Grant feared Forrest, so he may have had respect for him as a cavalry general. But had Forrest been back East prior to Jackson's death, what would have happened out west? Vicksburg might have been very different, same for the retreat from Shiloh.
