This soldier had under his direction a larger force than the army George Washington was able to muster and command in the several campaigns of our great struggle for independence. None of our generals in the war of 1812, among whom may be named Macomb at Plattsburg and Jackson at New Orleans directed in battle so large a number of men as did our Michigan soldier. Scott and Taylor won their victories in Mexico with armies less numerous. These references to American history are intended to make plainer the fact that the ability to com mand great armies requires genius of a high degree. In any nation during the stress of war few commanders prove by their success the possession of superior qualities. The long roll of history names many warriors, but the list of generals really great is sufficiently meager.
