I think he did has done more damage than Grant ever did, after all Early still has disciples today following his orders. You'll find him regularly quoted on Stormfront & pretty much any LoSer website.

But as this is a thread about Grant I'll leave it at that.

Without sources, I can just say then, your failure at this request, thanks for your opinion. 


Well then who would you call the founders of the Lost Cause?  I might suggest a couple titles to educate you, the links may or may not still be good.  Enjoy the read.
