Subject: "All the little Colt revolvers would have grown into horse pistols."
Description: President Lincoln, standing in telegraph office. A message came into the War Department that a skirmish with the enemy yielded the capture of 30 prisoners, all armed with Colt revolvers. President Lincoln commented with a twinkle in his eye that the dispatch would likely be exaggerated later by the newspapers. "All the little Colt revolvers would have grown into horse pistols."
