    Mr. McClanahan, during one of your lectures on the civil war I recall you saying that one of the Union general was quoted as saying something to the effect of, “If we are fighting to free the slaves I would join the other side”, but I don’t remember the person you quoted nor the exact quote, and I can’t remember which lecture it was from. Can you reference this quote for me please?

    Charlie,

    Thanks for your question. That would be Grant, and though some have questioned the authenticity of the quote, I answered this question in a bit more depth on this site here: http://www.libertyclassroom.com/forums/topic/u-s-grant-statement-on-reason-for-wbts/

    Hope that helps.
