Things you never knew about the Civil War #3647

General Braxton Bragg was a Confederate General who commanded the Armies of Mississippi and Tennessee. Bragg served in two positions, as Quartermaster and Head of the Infantry. In these positions, he would often argue with himself. As Head of the Infantry he'd send requisition memorandums to the Quartermaster and then as Quartermaster he would reply to those memorandums denying requisitions to the Head of the Infantry. This of course would go back and forth.

This has the makings of a great topic of conversation at parties where immense amounts of alcohol are served. Go forth. Drink! Discuss! Then come back here and let me know how it went!

  1. I know Bragg was perhaps the 2nd worst Confederate general after John Bell Hood...
