Seems like I met one of his his descendants. Can't recall his name.

Short, on a first name basis with every McDonalds server, usually has a Sam Adams in his hand, has a dirt fetish, oh and also has mustached sidekick scolding him!

Ring any bells? Great guy, let us see his ancestor's here map of Vicksburg Park and guides us at musters.

Listening to stories from @ucv about his ancestor was fascinating. He was a man of principal and not adverse to defending his actions, words and deeds. I would have loved to have had the opportunity to meet him and ask a few questions!

He was a man of many words and knew that the pen was mightier than the sword. After the fall of Vicksburg and they wanted to throw Gen Pemberton under the bus for it, he came to the defense of his boss. Being Pemberton's AAG he knew exactly what went on and let folks know it. If you read the 2 enclosures he makes a lot of sense, especially about VanDorn He was no fan of Johnston who wanted to bring him up on charges.
