Winfield Scott was a distinguished hero of the War of 1812! It's truly a shame that he didn't retire after the Mexican War and enjoy his well-earned fame. The lasting image of him is the fat, dottering old man, replaced by the dashing Little Mac.
You can add to those numbers 150,000 Germans. Was it Gen. Sykes who remarked, "After 1862 there were no regulars?"
