I read this morning where a British observer was reviewing The Army of Northern Virginia with Lee, and when the Texas Brigade had past, the British Colonel noticed the raggedness of the backs of the Texans' "uniforms". Lee responded: "Maybe so, Colonel, but the enemy never sees the backs of my Texans."

"If I thought this war was to abolish slavery, I would resign my commission, and offer my sword to the other side." --Ulysses S. Grant
