My Dad posted this earlier this week. A dedication written to one of the officers during the American Civil War.
I haven’t been able to shake it all week.
Amazing leadership principles here.
To William Everdell, Jr: In tender remembrance of his high soldierly bearing and never-failing courtesy to the least of his command; of his watchful solicitude that never seemed to sleep; of his eminent devotion to his men,–seeking out the over-fatigued on the march in order to relieve them of their burdens and cheer them with kind words, helping the exhausted and the sick to places of rest, and sharing with the regiment the exposure and discomfort of the bivouac howsoever miserable; the gallant commander and the soldier’s friend.
