Your admiration of Grant closely parallels mine.

He was what was needed at the time. His army was fed and equipped, and I know of only one time that he returned to his base. (Holly Springs.) He was a bulldog.

Lee might have been a better general, but even he couldn't stand against a man who simply just kept coming.

Kinda like a Rocky Marciano. Remember him? Beat his brains out and, in the last round, he was still beating out yours.

He couldn't spell "quit."
