More Yankee Courage !
What is it with Yankee's and Booze ?
Grant gets his men drunk and sends em in to be slaughtered ! Cold Harbor & Spotsylvania.
Later at The battle of the Crater, General James Ledlie and General Edward Ferrero get drunk in a Boom-proof While sending USCT and others in to be massacred.
The cartoon above is a lampoon of Ferrero from northern newspapers of the day !
Both were censured by a court of inquiry for their conduct during the battle.
Gotta Love the Courage !
