In this cast, I discuss a touching moment of support between William T. Sherman and Ulysses Grant that ultimately saved the Union. It occurred in May of 1862 after the First Battle of Corinth in Northern Mississippi. I am fascinated by both men, not because of their success or greatness, but because of their intense flaws that they both overcame to save the Union. I'll take you behind the scenes to a moment of vulnerability for Grant that nearly cost the United States the War. Sherman's friendship restored Grant's confidence and ultimately, helped win the Civil War.
