We asked you to think of something appropriately witty for this image taken from our article on Lincoln and McClellan from the August/September 2021 issue of Military History Matters. Here are the winners:

‘Remember, walls have ears, so your answer is blowing in the wind!’ — Evelyn Masson
‘Nice digs Sir!’ — Sgt Raymond Farreny

Nice digs Sir!
Lincoln: The price was right in the budget, so I took it!
Lincoln: I know its modest but the price was right. With inflation being what it is, I think I done good!

Remember, walls have ears, so your answer is blowing in the wind !
So a priest, a rabbi, and Bobby Lee walk into a bar……
