Fort Harrison

Zachary Taylor remembered the author of Facts and suggestions, biographical, historical, financial and political: addressed to the people of the United States (Google eBook), Duff Green, at Fort Harrison.

When after his election as President, I called with a friend, who introduced me to General Taylor, he said:  "Oh sir I knew General Green long before you did."  I replied,  "I did not suppose that you would recollect me."  He said, "I will never forget that you volunteered your regiment to remain at Fort Harrison."

Another post about the book's author, Duff Green.
