Shiloh, Tennessee – April 7, 1862 after Midnight – We’ll Whip ‘em Tomorrow depicts General Ulysses S. Grant conversing with General William Tecumseh Sherman after the Union setback on the first day’s Battle of Shiloh. Sherman says “It’s been the devil’s own day” and Grant replies “lick’em tomorrow, though”.
I have always thought that Grant’s reply to Sherman was evidence of his character and generalship. He never lost confidence in the face of obstacles.
