O.K., American men....  If you could go back to The Civil War, and be woke up by a Union general, and be asked to fight; who would it be?

    Was that one of the Union general's that invaded the South? I'd start with him.

      General William Tecumseh Sherman.  "War is cruelty.  The crueler it is, the sooner it'll be over."

    Generals don't go around waking up the cannon fodder, they have corporals and sergeants to do that for them.

    Think about it, fighting back then, lack of proper medicine, lack of proper surgical techniques, sterile environments were unknown. You lined up, closed your eyes, and hoped one of these wild shots didn't tear through you, basically looking eye to eye with gun barrels.  Most today would be triggered just by the suggestion. go running to their emotional support animal

    With my luck, it would be Grant, later ranked as the least intelligent of the American presidents. This was before 2016. However, I object to the name you used for the conflict; there is nothing civil about war.

      Tom, intelligent people refer to it as The War Between the States . NCWJ, It doesn't take much intelligence to kill people when you have money, troops, and equipment and your opponent does not. BTW, it was interesting that you started defending Trump when I was talking about unintelligent presidents

      Proud that The Union did what needed to be done.  Don't forget, we could beat Canada, too.
