Famous quotes containing the words general and/or election:

    The General has dedicated himself so many times, he must feel like the cornerstone of a public building.
    Adlai Stevenson (1900–1965)

    [If not re-elected in 1864] then it will be my duty to so co-operate with the President elect, as to save the Union between the election and the inauguration; as he will have secured his election on such ground that he can not possibly save it afterwards.
    Abraham Lincoln (1809–1865)
