General, thank you very much for stopping by to see me. Before I get to the matter at hand, let me tell you again how pleased I am with the outcome of your recent campaigns. Why, even the Confederates were impressed with your army’s tough fighting at Missionary Ridge, which led to the fall of Chattanooga last November! GENERAL GRANT: Thank you, Mr. President. I, too, am pleased with the way things are going, but I fear there is still much fighting to be done. Would you like a cigar? PRESIDENT LINCOLN: No, thank you. General, I summoned you here today to let you know that I am putting you in charge of all the Northern forces. As you know, I face a tough bid for reelection, and I should be better equipped to win if I demonstrate overwhelming military force . With you in charge of the whole Union army, we’ll be able to attack the South on every front simultaneously. GENERAL GRANT: I accept your charge, Mr. President, and agree with your thought process. I have it on good authority that the Confederacy hopes to make you look bad in the eyes of Northerners by inflicting heavy damages on the Union army. They believe this tactic will result in Northern voters
electing another president who will end the war through compromise . I will not, however, let that happen on my watch. Points: 1 / 1 Imagine that you are a telegraph operator for the Union army, and General William T. Sherman has given you the task of transmitting a personal message to President Lincoln. As you transcribe Sherman’s message, you encounter several words that are unclear because the ink from his pen smeared. Based on the narrated battle map, select the correct response from each dropdown menu to complete the message. December 21, 1864 Dear President Lincoln, I beg to present to you, as a Christmas gift, the city of Savannah . We continue to make excellent progress here in Georgia. I am still thrilled that we took Atlanta back in September, though perhaps not as thrilled as you are given that our successful efforts here in Georgia resulted in your reelection . I will keep you abreast of our progress as I continue this campaign of total war, but barring any unforeseen circumstances, I expect to march my troops into South Carolina
