      About a year ago (maybe longer) we had a discussion here about this.  After Thomas was dead, Sherman claimed he let Old Pap talk him out of promoting Logan.  However, it turns out that Sherman was basically trying to shift the blame for this from himself.  At the time he wrote that statement, Logan was a powerful leader in Congress and had a large say in the military's budget.  As General of the Army, Sherman correctly feared political retribution from Logan.
