There’s no “I” in “teamwork.” – Anonymous

From “Lincoln 365,” by Arnold Kunst
July 6
‘From the point of view of George Meade, who was from Pennsylvania, victory at Gettysburg had been complete because Lee’s invasion of his home state had been thwarted completely. Even so, he clearly did not see this conflict from a broad enough perspective. Ulysses Grant did, and in March of the following year when Grant assumed overall command of the Northern war effort, he billeted with the Army of the Potomac while George Meade maintained operational command of that army. In short, each man did what he was particularly good at. And Lee’s Army of Northern Virginia, which had escaped back to Virginia following Gettysburg, was eventually warn down to its last reserves and surrendered 22 months later at Appomattox.’

‘When a team outgrows individual performance and learns team confidence, excellence becomes a reality.’
