  • Sorry, that's incorrect
    Answer:

    Nathan Bedford Forrest.  Forrest was one of the best cavalry officers that served in the western theater, perhaps one of the best in the entire war.  He was a highly effective raider and an uncommonly aggressive fighter even in the open field.  The quote is probably apocryphal--Forrest was a reasonably well-educated businessman before the war--although it is widely attributed to him and seems to be an accurate expression of his strategic philosophy.  After the war, Forrest returned to business and became a Grand Wizard of the Ku Klux Klan.
