"The finest army on the Planet."
--The New York Herald
, (editorial,) of the 19th April, contains the following:
How goes the war?
What is the prospect?
Do the combinations of the spring campaign as they are gradually unfolded give us satisfactory assurances of great victories and a glorious peace, or of another summer of disappointments and disasters?
We answer that we have an abiding faith that the days of the rebellion are numbered, and that the end draws nigh.
, who commands the "finest army on the planet." is preparing for a forward movement which cannot be successfully resisted; for his force will advance this time, not in broken detachments, scattered over half the State of Virginia
, but on masse on the road to Richmond
"The best army on the planet" seems to have been struck by the tail of a comet
