Quick Notes

Here’s a really nice illustration of the Union Fleet on the Red River campaign. There is something satisfyingly solid about those ironclads.

Thought of the Day:

When General Grant crossed the Rapidan in 1864, his army contained around 120,000 men, enough men to form a line, two ranks deep, stretching for 25 miles! Despite this, in his first engagement, he managed to get outflanked on both ends.
