Quotable: General Sherman on the hell of war

“I confess, without shame, that I am sick and tired of fighting–its glory is all moonshine; even success the most brilliant is over dead and mangled bodies, with the anguish and lamentations of distant families, appealing to me for sons, husbands, and fathers … it is only those who have never heard a shot, never heard the shriek and groans of the wounded and lacerated … that cry aloud for more blood, more vengeance, more desolation.”

–General William Tecumseh Sherman

War is hell, Dubya!
