Example text

His immediate subordinates included a longtime associate of President Lincoln, former congressmen, and the son of a governor. Grant’s father had been a tanner. Grant had a West Point education, but this only differentiated him from Forrest superficially. Both came from the same social level and were looked down on for it. Grant’s drinking, for which he was widely scorned by other Union officers, was the subject of derision largely because of his background and resultant lack of polish. By contrast, “Fighting Joe” Hooker was known widely to drink—and apparently on battlefields, which Grant never did—yet alcohol was rarely, if ever, mentioned as one of his flaws.
