Beautiful Earth  - 
 
[in the aftermath of the Battle of Gettysburg] The sheer number of the dead and dying soldiers was unthinkable. Cornelia wrote that nearly 300 surgeons took five days to perform all the amputations required at Gettysburg, and many rebel soldiers were left to die on the battlefield with little food and untreated wounds.  Under these gruesome circumstances, she managed to earn respect from soldiers and medical staff. 
While the Gettysburg battle still raged, Dr. Jonathan Letterman was ordered to establish a general hospital nearby to care for casualties at a single site. The ways medical officers struggled to care for the casualties at Gettysburg are detailed in his report. 
“…The chief want was tents and other appliances for the better care of the wounded."

When Fort Donelson surrendered [Feb. 16, 1862,] the North went wild with excitement. Grant wanted to move quickly to Columbus and put it at the mercy of Federal bayonets. Admiral Foote repaired the river squadron, including three timberclads, seven ironclads, 38 mortar boats, tow boats, snag boats. Foote advised speed, too, no less aggressive than General Grant. However, General Halleck, "Old Brains," refused. 
Nevertheless, July 23, 1862 - General Henry W. Halleck assumed the role of general-in-chief of all union forces, which was floundering at that time. He had demonstrated strategic vision planning campaigns from headquarters but was less successful in the field—as when he delayed the Corinth, Mississippi campaign [April-May 1862,] in which the Confederates escaped a much larger Yankee force.

Enzymes reaching her brain screamed out the hurt, but she persevered, dragged one foot forward then the next. Till the pain got lost in the cadence of movement. Always forward. Always erect. “My dear, does it have to be so?” she asked.

Henri nodded his head sadly, yes.

"We have certain information that Vicksburg surrendered to Gen. Grant on the 4th of July. Now if Gen. Meade can complete his work so generously prosecuted thus far by the ... destruction of Lee's army the rebellion will be over. Yours truly, A. Lincoln

The ethnic cleansing, inspiring "Displaced," happened during The War in Bosnia. It saddens me that innocent people continue to be driven from their homes by armed thugs. http://goo.gl/ypLJQ6

July 22, 1975 - Confederate General Robert E. Lee had his full rights of citizenship posthumously restored by a joint congressional resolution post-dated effective June 13, 1865.  http://goo.gl/nNjvhk

"At the August 5, 1975, signing ceremony, President Gerald R. Ford acknowledged the discovery of Lee's Oath of Allegiance in the National Archives and remarked: "General Lee's character has been an example to succeeding generations, making the restoration of his citizenship an event in which every American can take pride." http://www.archives.gov/publications/prologue/2005/spring/piece-lee.html

"FELLOW CITIZENS: Another election, which is deemed an important one, is approaching, and, as I suppose, the Republican party will, without much difficulty elect their State ticket. But in regard to the Legislature, we the Republicans, labor under some disadvantages." Abraham Lincoln Speech at Springfield, July 17, 1858
