Thanks very much for your response. I am sorry to say that I am not familiar with your article on Prentice in "Military Images". Could you tell me how to get a copy of that edition? It sounds like the type of material for which I'm looking. I take it the article includes pictures of Prentice? He is a difficult character on which to find information. Any other direction as far as resources go would be much appreciated. No pun intended, but I would like to see Prentice's image rehabilitated to the point where information about him is based more on fact and less about opinion. Due to Dr. Davis' through job on Guerrant's diaries, it is sometimes convinient for writers and historians to pluck a line from a well accepted, singular source of that period in time, call it gospel, and use it to advance a particular point of view, namely Prentice was simply an undisciplined and inept officer. This then is taken as a statement of fact if it is cited enough times. In reality, I believe that Guerrant's accounts are a mix of opinion as well as factual reporting. This would be the case with almost any diarist. It is certainly no reflection on Dr. Davis' scholarship, but a matter of what the source material for Bluegrass Confederate is; a diary or journal. Thanks again for your time and effort.
