Abraham Lincoln was an ambitious politician, and his opponent in Illinois was a lifelong rival.
April 29, 1860, Springfield, Illinois
Lincoln writes to U.S. Senator Lyman Trumbull, of Illinois, regarding the upcoming presidential election. Trumbull asked for Lincoln's opinion on the Republicans' chances of carrying Illinois against Democrat and presumptive nominee U.S. Senator Stephen A. Douglas. Lincoln responds, "I will be entirely frank. The taste is in my mouth a little; and this, no doubt, disqualifies me, to some extent, to form correct opinions."

By 1864 surgeons were better prepared than for battles earlier in the Civil War. Hard lessons had been learned. Medical supplies came forward, aid stations dotted the landscape and medical cadets took up position beside assistant surgeons close to the firing line. Field hospitals were established beyond the range of cannons. However, during major battles the lines shifted, and medical personnel came under fire or were captured. Surgeons were noncombatants and technically should be released when taken by an enemy. In 1864 exchanges had broken down, and when Dr. Dudley was taken prisoner October of 1864, he was held for six weeks in Libby Prison.
"Everyone dreads the summer campaign. Our Surgeons know and appreciate Mrs. Lee's and my services very highly...I dread a battle awfully; somebody that I am attached to must suffer...Dr. Potter has been a prisoner in Richmond. Dr. Wolf has been there three times. I think it will be about [Dr.] Dudley's luck to go this summer. He is perfectly reckless in time of battle. Dr. Potter said said Dudley was caring for the wounded right on the front when he was shot at Gettysburg.
Cornelia Hancock, April 12th, 1864, 1st Div. 2nd Corps Hospt."

Aubrey puzzled out the notes, hearing them in his head. Nearby his dad listened to the latest war news from Europe. The English were sending troops to France. Mother scolded Wil, who screamed right back. The combination of sounds, news bulletins counterpointing with internal melodies, screeching mother and brother, melded into strange polyphony. Tones fused. Melodies combined to form one texture that inspired Aubrey like no other. Rhythms and clusters of tones came together prematurely. The first sound contradicted the next but the process stayed on to haunt him.
Aubrey went to the parlor piano to duplicate the jumble inside his head. The dissonance he produced made his brother Wil run upstairs, and, for the first time, also brought swift criticism from an unexpected place, his dad.
At the next composition lesson he played the mix for Madame Fattora. She stopped pacing. Her face froze. She didn’t reject Aubrey’s creation but cut him off for another reason. “You took me too literally. First, learn the rules. You are too young, much too inexperienced for violations. When rhythm and tone and harmony and the emotive quality of what you’re trying to accomplish are true to form, then you may consider breaking the rules.”

Maj. Gen. William B. Franklin was a classmate of Ulysses Grant. Franklin was first in the class of 1843, while Grant was twenty-fifth out of 39. Franklin did well at Fredericksburg, handling the Left Grand Division well, but he refused Burnside's order to renew the attack on Jackson. Some historians believe Franklin misunderstood the orders. After Fredericksburg, Franklin went on the offensive and proposed another campaign plan directly to President Lincoln without Burnside's approval. When the news of this reached Burnside, he removed Franklin from his command. Shortly afterwards, however, Burnside himself was removed from command.

Union Colonel Benjamin Grierson feared horses. One had kicked Grierson as a child, temporarily blinding him and scarring his face for life. He avoided horses. Unfortunately, when he volunteered for service in 1861, they put the horse-hater in the cavalry. He requested a transfer to infantry, but General Henry Halleck refused because Grierson looked “wiry enough to make a good cavalryman.” His full beard disguised the scar the horse left on his face, but any other duty suited Grierson much better than riding. He loved music and had taught himself how to play seven instruments.

However, they gave Colonel Grierson orders to create a cavalry diversion. He and three regiments of cavalry, 1,700 men, plunged south through a gap in rebel lines, rampaging the heart of Mississippi

This was the best and most comfortable home improvement process I have experienced. From the first visit through the final inspection everything went smooth and on time. The initial meeting with our Sales Consultant Russ Downs was terrific. He was very thorough and presented many good options. We chose the best one for us based on the guidance we received from Russ. He knew the products and had very valuable insight that assisted in our final decision. The installation team of John and Victor arrived on time the day of the install and worked very hard through the day to complete the job. They were both very good at what they did including the work site prep and clean up after the job. They also took time to walk me through the new furnace A/C humidifier and thermostat components. I would highly recommend this company to anyone looking for great service and product delivery.
