I ran across this while browsing and thought it very interesting. I am sure some here have read this or something similar but I thought I would post it anyway.

I don't know who the writer is but it is easy reading.

I have read nothing about that.  That doesn't mean it didn't happen.  I think the feud with Hill took most of his time.:)

Susan,

I believe Falci, who portrayed A.P. Hill in the movie "Gettysburg," is the same person of which you speak.

Check this site:
http://www.pickettsociety.com/hill02.html

In the group picture below the monument picture, he is identified in the caption as a past president of the NY CWRT. In the picture on the bottom, the caption said he gives lectures on Hill. It all seems to add up: his unusual last name, his interest in Hill, even his uncanny resemblance to the general.

Thanks there, PVT. Appreciate your remarks.  Falci does look like the General.
I would like to here him speak once.  I bet he is a hoot.

Pvt.  He is the same one that played A.P. Hill in the movie.  Basecat on this board is a member of the New York Round table and has mentioned him several times in conversations.  A.P. Hill is another of those intereresting characters in the Confederate Army.  Colorful characters I should say. 

For more information on A.P. and Stonewall  check out Class of 1846 by John Waugh

it's a shame there wasn't more seen of him in "Gettysburg" other than a scene of him talking to Lee beside the road I don't recall him having any significant screen time. I think there might be a bit more in the directors cut but not much.

Seems that all generals were a bit crusty. Stonewall might have been a bit crustier. Is that something that makes a general?

Ole

Braxton Bragg would have fit the description of "crusty." Does he belong in the pantheon of Great Generals? I have my doubts.

At Stones river, I believe a Confederate officer asked permission to shoot Bragg...too bad he was denied as
The CSA would have been well served...MHO

I have read that I think in the book I read about Cheatham.  I am surprised he was turned down .

Bragg had more supporters within the army than I think is commonly acknowledged. The anti-Bragg people simply get all the air time by historians.   Breckenridge certainly was not innocent at Stones River and that's just one of many examples.

Bragg personified crusty....which had a tendency to make those around him crusty as well....
