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"Bragg and Davis were not particularly good friends. Davis and Polk were indeed good friends. Probably one reason why Polk felt he could defy Bragg as much as he did.Sam Elliott
- 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.
