Benjamnin F. Butler, Butler's Book: Autobiography and Personal Reminiscences of Major-General Benjamin Butler, Chapter 18: why I was relieved from command. (search)
It will be observed that while he was reading some very fine novels, his mind did not turn to military novels, of which there were many in the library. He does not speak of ever having read a single work describing the carrying on of war from Alexander down to Napoleon, or even the battles of the Revolution and our war with Great Britain. He got to be a second lieutenant in a company in the Mexican War, and soon after resigned his command and took employment as clerk in the office of Captain Craig, a quartermaster in the army. I am not saying one word of this in any disparagement of General Grant. I am only attempting to show what military education a man may get passing through a course of study at West Point and graduating with such military accomplishments as will entitle him to a command in the regular army, and which, when war occurs, may be the impelling motives of governors of States in appointing such persons as colonels of their finest regiments of volunteer troops.
