"The Man Comes Around" is the title track from Johnny Cash‘s American IV:
The
Man Comes Around, released in 2002. It was actually written a few years
earlier; however, Cash updated it for the album. It is one of the last songs Cash
wrote before his death.

THE SLAPPING INCIDENT

Lt. Gen. George S. Patton, commander of the Seventh U.S. Army, visited a 
military hospital in Sicily where he confronted a soldier who was hospitalized
for "battle fatigue". He accused the private, 18-year-old Charles H. Kuhl, of
being a coward and slapped him twice.

Patton’s superior, General Dwight Eisenhower, compelled him to apologize
and sidelined him for almost a year after the incident.

Congress
and the general public expressed both support and disdain for
Patton’s actions,
