      Sam Compliments Sir,

      Thedious(SP) Polk was not as good a friend of Jeff Davis As Bragg??
      The Reverand had God on his side but not Jeff Davis- Jeff won.
      His Demise by cannon ball closed the question.
      I think Shermans dispatch stated: "We got the Preacher Today"

        Bob, Compliments Sir,

        I'm sorry for not getting back to you sooner, I just happen to
        notice your inquiry-I appogize(SP).
        Although I have a very "child like mind" I rarely make quotes that I
        can't back up and if my bluff is called I either acknowledge my
        screw up or own up to it.
        The actual quote which reads as follows:"A man I have never
        seen,Sir. His name is Forrest"
        I have seen this same qutoe in several publications but will give
        you the easiest one to document, if this does not suffice please let
        me know and I will give further documentation.
