Gen. J. Johnston Pettigrew who graduated from the University of North
Carolina with a perfect 4.0 average, and as Longstreet said in THE MOVIE,
"they still speak of your grades with reverence and awe. Actually, Pettigrew
and Matt Ransom had identical G.P.A.s the story of how that was resolved is
an interesting one, and one which caused a life-long rivalry between Ransom
and Pettigrew. Unfortunately,for Pettigrew "life-long" wasn't all that long.
