While General Grant was winning battles in the west, President Lincoln received many complanints about Grant's being a drunkard. When a delegation told him one day that Grant was hopelessly addicted to whiskey, the President is said to have replied: I wish that General Grant would send a barrel of whiskey to each of my other generals." What fallacy did Lincoln joking ly commit?
