    As always, very good. I knew there was opposition to the bill from Garfield and others but had never really delved into the ins and outs of how the legislation finally got passed. Interesting to contemplate Grant, a Republican, being nominated for President as a Democrat in 1864. And a question. Have found only a few of your presentations on YouTube and one other, IIRC, that Al Mackey suggested. Are there more of them out there in cyberspace?
