I am new to this message board,so I apologize in advance if I am asking questions that have already been covered.I am trying to catch up on the other threads. So here goes....
I was surprised to read that Grant was very impressed with Gen.Joe Johnston.It got me thinking about how he felt about a few others and I hope you guys can answer the following questions I have.
(1)What did Grant think of Nathan Forrest?Military wise and personally.I have certainly read what Gen.Sherman has said about him!!!
(2)What did Grant think about George McClellan as a General and personally?
(3)I believe Grant did respect Gen.Lee as a soldier,but how did he feel about him overall?I have heard Grant barely mentions Lee in his memoirs.Havn't read them myself so could you shed some light on that?
(4)Finally I have read that Grant especially disliked Jefferson Davis.That would be fairly obvious as to why.I am curious though as to what Grant actually said or wrote about him.Also how did Grant feel about the lenient punishment that Davis received after the war?
Again hope this isn't repeating anything previously discussed here.Thanks in advance!!!
