— John S. Mosby Confederate Army officer 1833 - 1916
Letter to Samuel "Sam" Chapman (June 1907)
Contexto: The South went to war on account of slavery. South Carolina went to war, as she said in her secession proclamation, because slavery would not be secure under Lincoln. South Carolina ought to know what was the cause for her seceding. The truth is the modern Virginians departed from the teachings of the Father's.
