Grant Comes East - Historical Fiction

From Grant Comes East by Newt Gingrich and William R. Forstchen:

"These Westerners were rawboned boys from prairie farms in Iowa and Ohio, lumberjacks from Michigan, mechanics from Detroit, and boatmen from the Great Lakes and Midwest rivers."  "...they already know their mission...pull the defeated Army of the Potomac out of the fire and put the Confederacy in the grave."

The thoughts of General Herman Haupt awaiting General Grant at Cairo, Illinois, at the confluence of the Mississippi & Ohio Rivers.
