Default One Box Horrors of War 2




He was nicknamed Black Jack because of his black eyes and hair and dark-skinned complexion. As the war progressed, Logan advanced in rank. On March 13, 1863, two months before the Battle of Raymond, he was commissioned major general and led the 3rd Division of McPherson's 17th Corps. It was the young and newly appointed General John Logan, who led the Union attack in the Battle of Raymond.
During the opening moments of the battle, the Union Army, surprised by the suddenness and fierceness of the Rebel attack, almost broke and ran. It was General Logan who, riding his horse up and down the front line, managed to control the attack and prevent his men from breaking.
As the fighting erupted along Fourteen Mile Creek, General Logan guided his horse toward the front of the Union line, barking commands to his division: "For God's sake men, don't disgrace your country: see how they're holding them." With bullets hissing through the air and the creek turning red with blood, the startled Yankees had only one thought in mind - break and run.

Thank you Mr Price for this wonderful product

Thanks Nicnac

Great video on Logan

Origins of Memorial Day
Memorial Day was officially proclaimed on 5 May 1868 by General John Logan, national commander of the Grand Army of the Republic, in his General Order No. 11, and was first observed on 30 May 1868, when flowers were placed on the graves of Union and Confederate soldiers at Arlington National Cemetery. The first state to officially recognize the holiday was New York in 1873. By 1890 it was recognized by all of the northern states. The South refused to acknowledge the day, honoring their dead on separate days until after World War I (when the holiday changed from honoring just those who died fighting in the Civil War to honoring Americans who died fighting in any war). It is now celebrated in almost every State on the last Monday in May (passed by Congress with the National Holiday Act of 1971 (P.L. 90 - 363) to ensure a three day weekend for Federal holidays), though several southern states have an additional separate day for honoring the Confederate war dead: January 19 in Texas, April 26 in Alabama, Florida, Georgia, and Mississippi; May 10 in South Carolina; and June 3 (Jefferson Davis' birthday) in Louisiana and Tennessee.

Logan also lent his name to Logan Circle, a well-known neighborhood in Washington filled with landmark Victorian homes. Logan himself lived on the circle, though it wasn't named for him until the 1930s.,_D.C.
