The officer corp. of that era carries the total baggage of the CW, The ranks of it are filled with one eyed, one armed, one legged lame and mentally "war stressed" individuals. The "pecking order" picodilos of the Brevet rank crap is on-going, stupid and consuming. Heck, I am still trying to figure out how Sturgis got the Colonelcy of the Regt. and GAC the oak leaves. Sturgis' "independant command" record is an abomination! Forrest practically destroyed his command when Surgis had a 3-1 advantage in 1864. Moylan, just like most of the officer's still living, they catered to Libbie, afterall, she had the ear of Presidents and the General Public.
