RE: [civilwarwest] Re: Bragg Vs Forrest
- Bragg and Davis were not friends. That they were is a myth.
Polk and Davis were friends from their days at WP.

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.
