|Forrest was a fighting man of the highest order. He was also a self made soldier. It was Sherman that thought him the best general of the war; which holds some weight. He wasn't a Cavalry Officer in any way shape or form as he didn't do what Cav is supposed to do. he used his men as raiders taking a page from the Native American far more than from the European experiance.
He was also not the kind of fellow any of us would likely invite home to sunday dinner; but he was certainly the guy you'd want on your side in a fight.
