Mark Twain Trail Quote of the Day – Tuesday – February 16, 2021


“This is the simple soldier, who, all untaught of the silken phrase-makers, linked words together with an art surpassing the art of the schools and put into them a something which will still bring to American ears, as long as America shall last, the roll of his vanished drums and the tread of his marching hosts.”  Mark Twain, Describing General Ulysses S. Grant, Notebook, 1866
