Super Quote: (re: President Abraham Lincoln on Edwin M Stanton)

Abraham Lincoln

Here's a super quote by Abraham Lincoln regarding his Secretary of War Edwin M. Stanton. In it, he explains how much Stanton meant to him during the Civil War.

Edwin M. Stanton

“He is the rock on the beach of our national ocean against which the breakers dash and roar, dash and roar without ceasing. He fights back the angry waters and prevents them from undermining and overwhelming the land. Gentlemen, I do not see how he survives, why he is not crushed and torn to
pieces. Without him I should be destroyed.” -- President Abraham Lincoln On Secretary of War, Edwin M. Stanton

Masterful rhetoric! I lifted the quote from the incredible James L. Swanson book, "Manhunt: The 12 Day Chase For Lincoln's Killer".
