From In the Miro District, by Peter Taylor
CIVIL WAR HISTORY
"My father, who read Civil War history, would, in my presence, try to draw the old man out on the subject, asking him about Forrest's strategy or whether or not the War might have been won if Jeff Davis had paid more attention to the 'Western Theatre.' And all Grandfather Manley would say was: 'I don't know about any of that. I don't know what it matters.'"
