  1. Clearly, the War Chicken and Longstreet saved Lee (& thereby the Confederacy) @ the Battle of the Wilderness.
    Nellie’s blood spilled was arguably as important as any that day, including Longstreet’s, and helped ensure the wanton slaughter continued another year more.
    Long Live the War Chicken ?!
    (GO MEG!)
