Confederate Forces

In the later months of 1862, Abraham Lincoln grew distinctly annoyed that General George B. McClellan, despite enjoying a superiority in numbers, was making little headway against Confederate forces. Finally, Lincoln sent the general a message:

"If you don't want to use the army," it read, "I should like to borrow it for a while. Yours respectfully, A. Lincoln."
