PoP's Southern American: Unable to Take Richmond:

12/28/2011

Unable to Take Richmond:

"Abraham Lincoln once asked General (Winfield) Scott the question: "Why is it that you were once able to take the City of Mexico in three months with five thousand men, and we have been unable to take Richmond with one hundred thousand men?

"I will tell you," said General Scott. "The men who took us into the City of Mexico are the same men who are keeping us out of Richmond."

(Confederate Veteran Magazine, September 1913, page 471)
