William Tecumseh Sherman & Ulysses S. Grant

After Sherman's successes in Georgia in the fall of 1864, a bill was introduced in Congress to promote him to Lieutenant General, with a view of him replacing his commander and friend Grant as commander of the Union Army. Sherman vehemently declined the promotion with this memorable declaration of loyalty.

"General Grant is a great general. I know him well. He stood by me when I was crazy, and I stood by him when he was drunk; and now, sir, we stand by each other always."

Some. Day. Soon

I want 3 months. And a good book. A gun. A radio. No Internet. No Phone.
Some. Day. Soon.

Perfect for Friday day-dreaming.
