1 “I was in Washington in the Indian service for a few days before August, 1861, and I merely said to Lincoln one day. ‘Everything is drifting into the war, and I guess you will have to put me in the army.’ He looked up from his work and said, good-humoredly, ‘I'm making generals now. In a few days I will be making quartermasters, and then I'll fix you.’ ” --H. C. Whitney, Ms. letter, June 13, 1866.
