      Well that depends too, I have rank and file accounts that are either neutral or pro Bragg as well.  The whole view of Bragg is much much more complicated than most would believe.  I have soldier accounts from men under Anti Bragg commanders that are pro Bragg.

      I don't think that includes Cleburne as an anti, add Forrest and the
      two best commanders in the AOT were anti-Bragg.
      The likes of JK Jackson, aka Mudwall Jackson, gives the level of the
      pro-Bragg faction.

      This is also not entirely true, there were some good officers in the Pro Bragg group, Henry Clayton and EC Walthall for example.
