General Grant- 1865 Blog- letter to Abe
Sir, we have won the war. The battle of Richmond is won and done. This war has taken four years to battle. The tactics and strategy it took to win this war. I just want to thank you for giving me the opportunity of being the Union's General. The Confederacy never knew what hit them after Sherman’s March. I myself went through a year at Vicksburg, probably the worst time of my life. I just wanted to thank you for everything you’ve done for me. Thanks Abe.
