Lame Man, Blind Man
William Tecumseh Sherman It is well known fact that President Ulysses S. Grant was an alcoholic. It isn’t as well known that General William Tecumseh Sherman suffered from severe depression. During the early days of the Civil War, he suffered from what was then termed “nervous exhaustion.” Many believed he was insane. These two great commanders fought the Civil War together. They supported one another when others wanted them destroyed. They never forgot where they came from or who stood beside them in their darkest hour. Go thou and do likewise.
