Quote of the Day April 24, 2012

John B. Gordon

“He dressed for a battle as others would dress for a ball, and when the boys saw his clear gauntlets and his shining epaulets on him, they ate all their rations, lest they should die before they had a chance to finish them.”  One of John B. Gordon’s soldiers describes his commander. From A Glorious Army by Jeffry D. Wert. New York: Simon and Schuster, 2011 page 242.
