I got my Porters mixed up. I was thinking of Fitz John Porter.

OK, here is the best book on the topic of Bull Nelson and Jefferson Davis:

Jefferson Davis in Blue, the Life of Sherman's Relentless Warrior by Nathaniel Hughes Jr and Gordon Whitney, 2002, LSU Press.  Chapter 7 is titled, The Murder of Nelson.

   To me, the most mistreated general was Major General William "Bull" Nelson, because he was murdered by Brigadier General Jefferson Columbus Davis.


I have to agree, the most egregious treatment of any General in the war.
