"No history now extant can furnish an inastance of an army's suffering such uncommon hardships as ours has done and bearing with them the same patience and fortitude. To see men without cloths to cover their nakidness, without blankets to lie on, without shoes (for the want of which their marches might be traced by the book from their feet)...and submitting without a murmur, if a proof of patience and obedience which in my opinion can scarce be paralleled."

Napolean Bonaparte at Borodino

I know!! I had to read the quote 2 times to make sure of its content. He said it back in 1934

A very good guess but no, Napolean did not say that line nor was it said at Borodino.

correct, I will not post any more FDR quotes.

"Colonel, why do you not get your brigade together, keep it together and move on?"

"It's impossible, General; I can't do it."

"Don't say it's impossible. Turn your command over to the next officer. If he can't do it, I'll find someone who can, if I have to take him from the ranks."

"Soon a different state of things showed the effect of the indomitable will of this man."
