Robert E.      Lee
It is well that war is so terrible, or we would grow too fond of it.
Robert E. Lee

The American people, as a nation, knew not what they were fighting for till recently, and many have different opinions now as to the ends and results of the contest. But there is but two results possible, one is slavery and poverty and the other is liberty and prosperity.
James Henry Gooding, On the Altar of Freedom: A Black Soldier's Civil War Letters from the Front
