From US Grant by Joan Waugh (Pg. 176).

“Robert U. Johnson [from Grant’s era] observed that every battle has a least four points of view: that of the man who gets credit for the victory, that of the man who thought he should get the credit, that of the man who is blamed for the defeat, and that of the man who is blamed by the man who is blamed for the defeat. Out of these elements, history is written.”

Nice quote!

I guess the line soldiers version is what I saw, what the guy to my right saw and what the guy to my left saw.....

An amusing one from Teddy Roosevelt (a generation later but can still be stretched to Civil War weaponry) is when he was presented a repeating rifle before embarking with the Rough Riders to Cuba. "Bully! I may not always shoot straight, sir, but I shall shoot often!"

I need a bumper sticker with that on it....
