Thank you Congressman for standing up in Washington for General Grant. When the rest of the army was ready to give up on him, he was the one who lead our armies to victory during the Civil War. Rest in peace, sir.

To your everlasting credit, Mr. Washburn, is not helping to push Ulysses Grant's military career in 1861 (important as that is) but that you did herculean labors as our Minister to Paris in the Franco-Prussian War to aid the French, and you tried to save the life of Georges Darboy, the Archbishop of Paris, who was brutally executed by the Paris Commune.

A good man, who served his country in both principle and deed. Your actions had a more lasting effect than you (and those of your times) realize. Rest in peace.
