Gen. US Grant and President A. Lincoln. If I were to wish any of my students the early life experiences that these men had, I would be hard-pressed to keep anyone in my classroom. Yet, I have no doubt that had they not lived, the nation I’ve come to love would have never been.
This image says a great deal about the man President Lincoln once compared to a dog that would never let go once he had his jaws shut.
I ask that all who read this and love their nation to pay their respects at the General’s tomb when they can spare the time. Information and directions can be found here: http://www.nps.gov/gegr/planyourvisit/directions.htm
