Bravo Ole, excellent post.

In regards to the question over the names that Grant and Sherman used for each other during conversation, I was instantly reminded of an exchange between the two of them at Shiloh. The conversation took place on the evening of April 6th as Sherman approached Grant to discuss retreating across the Tennessee River. When he saw the look on Grant's face he changed his tack to learn his commander/friend's mood

Sherman: "Well Grant, we've had the devil's own day, haven't we?"

Grant: "Yes. Lick em tomarrow though."
