Here's a new challenge:
Match Generals with the names of their horses.
General Lee?
General Grant?
General Sheridan?
General Meade?
There are of course plenty more for those willing to play. Awaiting the replies of people who know where Generals seated their hind-quarters!
(If no takers I will push out the answers tomorrow, and add a few more.)

I was thinking of "Reinzi" for Sheridan.
How about Jackson's, or A.S. Johnston's???
(or a couple of other mounts in Lee's stable)

Joe Johnston was more known as uncle joe. I was in the bookstore today and was reading an opinion by grant that Johnston gave him the most trouble.

Interesting....
Did Grant say when this happened? The only time I can think of when they were pitted against each other was during the Vicksburg Campaign. I would compare the trouble he gave Grant in 1863 to me having to stop and scratch my nose while skinning a deer. :|

No, but he referred to wishing he knew Johnston was coming to Vicksburg, so I was guessing before that.

It only gets drafty around here in the winter. Wish we could save it in this 90+ degree heat!
