UNIONCONFEDERACY Abraham Lincoln Jefferson Davis
Quotes from Abraham Lincoln Without slavery, the rebellion could never have existed. Without slavery, it could not continue." "Although volume upon volume is written to prove slavery a very good thing, we never hear of the man who wishes to take the good of it, by being a slave himself."
Quotes from Jefferson Davis If the Confederacy falls, there should be written on its tombstone: Died of a Theory. "The time for compromise has now passed, and the South is determined to maintain her position, and make all who oppose her smell Southern powder and feel Southern steel." --Jefferson Davis, from his inaugural speech on February 16, 1861
UNIONCONFEDERACY Ulysses S. Grant Robert E. Lee
Ulysses S. Grant Quotes I know only two tunes: one of them is "Yankee Doodle," and the other isn't. " I know no method to secure the repeal of bad or obnoxious laws so effective as their stringent execution." March 4, 1869, Grant's First Inaugural Address
Robert E. Lee Quotes [W]e made a great mistake in the beginning of our struggle, and I fear, in spite of all we can do, it will prove to be a fatal mistake. We appointed all our worst generals to command our armies, and all our best generals to edit the newspapers. It is well that war is so terrible -- lest we should grow too fond of it.
