"The South is scceeding from the North because the two are not homogeneous. They have different instincts, different appetites, different morals, and a different culture."

Anthony Trollope, a British citizen who traveled in the North and South during the early part of the war.

"Governor, if I had forseen the use those people designed to make of their victory, there would have been no surrender at Appomattox Court house; no sir, not by me. Had I forseen these results of subjugation, I would have preferred to die at Appomattox with my brave men, my sword in this right hand!"

General Robert E. Lee in a private conversation with Governor Stockdale of Texas.
August, 1870.

Deo Vindice!

An' his rules is his rules!"
