I wouldn't mind seeing Bragg's rebuttal that the writer mentions at the end of the article. Forrest definitely isn't blameless for some of the overall factors that caused Chickamauga to not be the complete victory it could have been for the Confederates. The information he provided Bragg wasn't always accurate or timely. At the same time Forrest can probably be excused for trying to quickly learn the ropes as a new corp commander, it just wasn't the best time to be learning on the job when you have the Battle of Chickamauga looming.
What "personal run ins with Bragg" are you referring to?I find his statements on Bragg very polite in light of his personal run ins with Bragg not the least of which when Bragg put forrest temporarily under Wheelers command. Forrest didnt take anything laying down and never shrank from calling anyone out.
