I think it depends on the context. If Forrest knew you were coming, or could anticipate your movements and you were a bit slow or in the mud, you're done. In active warfare he was the best.

But if I were sitting back, defending my homeland, I'd fear Sherman the most. Perhaps not as bold as Grant, he'd cut my supplies without mercy and make my homeland howl before firing a shot. Forrest would come right at me, while Sherman would shrewdly destroy the countryside while I watched.
