229 psl. - At all the watery margins they have been present. Not only on the deep sea, the broad bay, and the rapid river, but also up the narrow muddy bayou, and wherever the ground was a little damp, they have been, and made their tracks.
222 psl. - I reckoned it would be cavalry, of course, for we hadn't horses enough to mount what men we had. There were fifteen thousand or thereabouts up near Harper's Ferry and no horses to put them on. Well, the other day, Grant...

144 psl. - For organizing an army, for preparing an army for the field, for fighting a defensive campaign, I will back General McClellan against any general of modern times. I don't know but of ancient times, either. But I begin to believe that he will never get ready to go forward...
188 psl. - He is playing his very best, and he is well supported. It is a perfect idealization, and the President is studying it intensely. He is enjoying himself. He has forgotten the war. He has forgotten Congress. He is out of politics. He is living in Prince Hal's time.
