  You are correct that in 1864, Mr. Lincoln found the general that he had been looking for since 1861. In 1861, Grant was not yet that general- but he would soon grow to be.

  Some of the southerners who knew him expressed the fear that he would some day be: "Found," and even when he was, his rise to prominence was almost stopped by other Union generals who were jealous of his successes in the west. Fortunately for Mr. Lincoln, he saw the contrast between General Grant and many other Union generals in Grant's ardent desire to engage the enemy.
