Joseph E. Johnston

Joseph E. Johnston (Confederate General of the U.S. Civil War, lived 1807-1891)

“The Southern infantry had great advantage over the Northern in their greater familiarity with firearms. It was the reverse, however, in relation to the artillery; for that of the South had had neither time nor ammunition for practice, while much of that of the North belonged to the regular service.”

  • From Joseph E. Johnston’s Narrative of Military Operations During the Civil War (chapter 2).
