Brion, in your lectures on the WBTS you mentioned a statement by U.S. Grant in which he basically says if he thought the war was fought to free the slaves, then he would resign his commission and fight for the South. I used that quote in a debate and was quickly chastised for it. My assailant claimed that the quote was bogus and provided a link from wordpress.org that claimed that the quote was not legit. Can you point me to a source for that quote? Thanks
Some have said this cannot be considered an accurate source and that the quote was made up by his political opponents, but every other bit of information in that book is well sourced. I think it is legitimate.
