Yes it will. Look at Atlanta, Raleigh-Durham, and Austin. The South WILL rise again. Under Yankee management.

Sherman and Grant are the two greatest soldiers this country has ever produced. And to prove it, they burned the South.

I mean I only whipped out my dick and jerked off for like 30 seconds. I was in that school for like seven or eight hours.

Sherman, yes, but Grant wasn't a great tactical soldier. He was exceptional on the strategic and operational levels; the logistical engine he created to provision the Army of the Potomac in late 1864 would be unparalleled until Eisenhower's buildup for Normandy in 1943-44.

Dear South,

If you're going to "rise," you're going to need at least a little of an education before you do.  Otherwise, it'll just be like playing dodgeball against a bunch of wheelchair-bound quadriplegics.

That's exactly my thinking. Grant was the first soldier in the war to grasp the strategic realities of what needed to be done. Sure, Lee won a bunch of battles. But Grant knew how to defeat Lee with a long term strategy.

Considering this is Virginia there is a very real possibility she or her family have suffered greatly at the hands of Confederation sympathizers. "Jokes" like that aren't so funny if grandpa was lynched.

Grant knew that he had overwhelming manpower, and could eventually win with that.

Grant also knew that his strategy, while virtually guaranteed to be successful, would result in the deaths of many thousands of men in an unimaginably violent meat grinder.

What I'm saying is I understand why Grant drank a lot of whiskey. I would, too.

You mean using Winfield Scott's original "Anaconda" plan?  It didn't survive politics and McClellan's ego, but once the war dragged on long enough, Grant could execute it.

Pretty much. One thing to remember also is that after "LIttle Mac", Lincoln kept a tight leash on the Generals who commanded the Army of the Potomac.That's why you had a string of failures (save for Meade, but he had plenty of his own problems) Grant leveraged his western successes and Lincoln's respect into freedom of action, which he proceeded to use.

Grant knew he could win. And he knew it would cost the Union. What Sherman did was actually pretty risky, same with the Wilderness and Cold Harbor. But it was precisely this risk taking that ended the war, and what should have been done from the start.

I admit, I do find it funny to troll Southerners by saying that Grant and Sherman were way better officers than Lee and his guys. But at the same time there's a damn solid argument there that they were.

A lot of people picture Sir Sam Vimes, Duke of Ankh-Morpork, as Clint Eastwood. In my mind's eye, he looks almost exactly like that powerful photographic portrait of a troubled but defiant General Wm. Tecumseh Sherman.

Apparently Sir Pterry had a British actor in mind but his illustrator thought Clint Eastwood--possibly because Eastwood is more TransAtlantic and commercial.

But to me, Sam will always be separated at birth from General Sherman--ruthless, drunk, conscience-racked, but ready to serve the City of Ankh Morpork and the cause of policeman's justice anywhere and everywhere, through all 888 Hells if necessary, to his dying breath and then some.

Clint Eastwood is also in the Great American Family Tree somewhere, but I don't believe I have added the relevant records yet.

And, of course, I added General Sherman (and his Congressional brother, John) to my family tree ages ago.

They're both related to General Robert E. Lee. I have ancestors on both sides of most North American wars and quite a few European wars.

If you haven't seen the documentary, yet, i (Sherman's March: A Meditation on the Possibility of Romantic Love In the South During an Era of Nuclear Weapons Proliferation, 1986) it is a classic and well worth watching. There is also a 2007 History Channel documentary, but it isn't nearly as amazing--more of your ordinary, run-of-the-mill history documentary.  This is absolutively one of the most brilliantly comic and sad documentaries I've seen in my lifetime.

That weird, wild and wonderful documentary on the cousins of Jacqueline Bouvier Kennedy Onasis, a study in Old Money in Decay, is another. I also liked Last Waltz when I was a college boy.

If you see one weird, wild and wonderful thing today, make it Sherman's March (1986).
