In the Civil War, General John Logan's gallantry earned him mythical stature among the soldiers he led in battle. The memoir of a fellow Union officer depicts Logan's unique inspirational impact:

"When General Grant would ride down our line he commanded the most thorough respect and confidence from all of us, and it was the same when General Sherman rode down the line. But when General Logan rode down the line, every voice was heard in a shout. He seemed to have a power to awaken the enthusiasm that was in the troops, to the extent that no other officer in our army seemed to possess. He would stir up their blood in battle. The manner in which he sat his horse, the manner in which he would hold his hat...seemed to have the power to call out of the men every particle of fight that was in them."

General Mortimer Dormer Legget
