"Then Came the Legions." Mackinley Kantor

One-minute review: The grizzled old Cap, who can’t do anything right and who had drunk himself out of his commission in the army, takes over a group of recruits in the town and teaches them to march smartly. Someone jokingly tells him to apply to the army for a commission again. He does. And he is U.S. Grant.

Comment: I wonder if this is true. RayS.
