ATTN: HS History students.. feel free to cite this

Charlie’s studying the civil war and the failed opportunity by the Union Army to potentially end the war after victory at Gettysburg. In an attempt to be helpful, I told Charlie, “that’s cause Lincoln’s generals were weak sauce.”

I graduated with honors in History – and took a full year of upper division military US history at PSU. Not sure Dr. Heath would have been impressed with the insightful thesis that included the term "weak sauce". I guess old age and real-life have faded my academic vocabulary.

I stand, however, by the statement.
