Gordon could be a bit loose with the truth. He was strongly into post war reconciliation , which was a good thing , but some of his stories stretched things a bit.
I suspect you’re right - be it inaccurate memory or purposely truth stretching - nevertheless the ORs are the most “accurate “ accounting we have 160 years after the fact and his accomplishment in those are stellar in my opinion
