Who knew?

Who knew?

“... the most modest, the most disinterested, and the most honest man I ever knew, with a temper that nothing could disturb and a judgment that was judicial in its comprehensiveness and wisdom.  Not a great man, except morally, not an original or brilliant man, but sincere, thoughtful, deep and gifted with courage that never faltered.  When the time came to risk all, he went in like a simple-hearted, unaffected, unpretending hero, whom no ill omens could deject and no triumph unduly exalt.”  Charles Dana, as commissioner for the war department and former newspaperman at the New York Tribune, knew U.S. Grant and rendered that assessment. Who can dispute the existence of the ‘good ‘ole days’ when men were men?
