Excerpt from The War in America: Being an Historical and Political Account of the Southern and Northern States; Showing the Origin and Cause of the Present Secession War
Although we have endeavoured to be impartial in the presentation of facts, yet we are sure neither the fanatics of the north, nor the fire-eaters of the south, will be pleased with the expositions we have made. He who does not sustain their respective destructive policies is censured; and such, no doubt, will be our inevitable fate. We are a native of Virginia. In youth our play-grounds were upon the banks of bull-run: and as we loved our country then, so we do now; and we shall continue to cherish the hope for its common weal. We trust that a new govern ment will be framed - one that will prevent the success of sectionalism, Whether in the north or in the south.
