      In the spirit of the season I will accept all of these kind words with
      gladness, and I will work on my material as well.

      Interesting about that Lincoln quote, and the cavalry of both sides
      after Antietam. Ethan Rafuse's "McClellan's War" makes a pretty decent
      case for what Mac's cavalry was doing after the battle that would cause
      them fatigue- they were chasing after Jeb Stuart who was riding around
      Mac's army. Perhaps Stuart was trying to make up for his poor
      early-September performance?
