Famous quotes containing the words west and/or regiment:

    He is every other inch a gentleman.
    —Rebecca West [Cicily Isabel Fairfield] (1892–1983)

    We had an inspection today of the brigade. The Twenty-third was pronounced the crack regiment in appearance, ... [but] I could see only six to ten in a company of the old men. They all smiled as I rode by. But as I passed away I couldn’t help dropping a few natural tears. I felt as I did when I saw them mustered in at Camp Chase.
    Rutherford Birchard Hayes (1822–1893)
