Confederate Gen. Gideon Pillow, and Confederate Gen Simon Buckner were both at Fort Donelson (TN)in 1862.I have heard verbally from at least three sources that there was "bad blood" between these two. There is said to have been a "feud," of sorts, between them, but I can't the reason for the anomosity between this.
On of my sources says the Pillow - Bucker feud came from some incident in the Mexican War. Yet another source says the Pillow - Buckner feud came as the result of an election in 1857.
What is the real story behind the anomosity Genls Pillow and Buckner??
