      While Grant’s predecessor in DC was, of course, a Western general, many would argue that he was not a good one.  He certainly was not a good G-i-C.

      Yes, I have read that some where too.  Also, the ANV boys noted a different ferocity in the Western Blue’s as well.  Of course, that would change when a good Western General took over in D.C.

      Steve,

          That is hilarious. :)

       

      Isn't there a story of an incident that happened at Chickamauga when Longstreet's ANV boys arrived in their new uniforms.  One of the AoT soldiers made a similar comment along the lines of "be careful boys, those ain't your prissy boys of the east, those are real westerners your facing."
