Gen. Ulysses S. Grant: Well, I do have a certain political ambition after the war, if I survive. I mean to run for mayor of Galena, and if I win, I mean to have the sidewalk fixed up between my house and the depot.

Abraham Lincoln: The problem is not my getting killed, Ward, I expect I shall some day. There is no way to stop it. What I fear is being captured by rebels and held for ransom.

Ward Hill Lamon: How much do you think the rebels would ask for you?

Abraham Lincoln: It's not how much, it's how many. They want their prisoners of war back. One ugly President swapped for a 100,000 soldiers would be very tempting to 'ol Jeff Davis. You see, sooner or later they will run out of men and we won't. And that's how we'll win.
