Lick’em tomorrow

Twenty-twenty was the bicentennial of the birth of the Civil-War General, William Tecumseh Sherman. Before his brilliant campaign that culminated in the capture of Atlanta, GA and his march to the sea that contributed to the defeat of the South, Sherman was in command of a portion of the Union forces at Shiloh, TN.

After a disastrous first day at the battle of Shiloh, the story goes that

Sherman said to his commanding officer, Ulysses S. Grant, “Well, Grant, we’ve had the devil’s own day, haven’t we?” After a puff of his cigar, Grant calmly replied, “Yep. Lick ’em tomorrow, though.”

We have had the devil’s own year. So, for us, tomorrow dawns.

Be not afraid. We win; they lose.
