Your commentary by Benjamin J. Dueholm started out OK, but, ended very badly. If anybody had some knowledge of U.S. History, the last half of his opinion would have easily been discounted.
This essay contains numerous falsehoods about the outcome at Fort Pillow on April 12, 1864. History recorded a much different view than this author. One must also realize what kind of troops inhabited this fort for the Union and why General Forrest ordered the assault. Add to all of this the fact General Sherman was mobilizing a huge army in Chattanooga, and Forrest needed to disrupt any Union plans of invading Georgia.
You need to get all the facts out ... this author is obviously very biased.
