Need Help With US Grant Quote

by Fred Ray on June 17, 2013 · 0 comments

I am looking for a cite for a U. S. Grant quote. It was supposedly made while touring in France after the war when someone asked him what he’d learned from Napoleon.

I faced two problems during the war. One was the rifled musket behind works and the other was moving huge amounts of men and material by rail. Napoleon had nothing to say on either of them.

I’ve seen this several times but have not been able to find a source. Anyone know?
