General John Buford

Inspection Report
Louisville, Kentucky
January 4, 1862
by General John Buford
Assistant Inspector General


I found it more satisfactory to post the actual report rather than transcribing it.  It is easy enough to read and you will discover that John was not only a straight forward, no non-sense guy but had a darn good sense of humor as well.  In reading this I found myself chuckling more than a few times.  No "goody-2-shoes" Politically Correct BS here.  I hope you will enjoy the read.

I am Very Respectfully
Your Obedient Servant
