“Let no man be so rash as to suppose that, in donning a general’s uniform, he is forthwith competent to perform a general’s functions; as reasonably might he assume that in putting on the robes of a judge he was ready to decide any point of law. . .”

Dennis Hart Mahan, 1864 (in Dupuy, The Military Heritage of America, 1984)
