General Sherman lias said, "There may be siicli men as born generals, but I have never encountered them, and I doubt the wisdom of trusting to their turning up in an emergency." The truth seems to be that generals are partly born and partly made, and are the joint product of three characteristics : talent, or a faculty born in the man; science, or a faculty acquired by study; and art, or a faculty acquired by experience. What is here said with respect to generals may be said, too, with respect to efficient officers of all grades ; and there is not a grade in which a knowledge of the highest branch of military science may not prove advantageous. A lieutenant in charge of a scouting party may be confronted with problems which nothing but generalship will enable him to solve.
