We're accustomed to the names and deeds of the "generals," from the commander-in-chief all the way down to the just about innumerable brigadiers, and we're all roughly blind to the conduct and features of the people who composed the rank and dossier of the "grand armies" of 1861-65. As time rolls on, the historian, condensing issues, mentions "the males" by means of brigades, divisions, and corps. yet right here allow us to examine the person soldier separated from the large plenty of fellows composing the armies, and doing his personal paintings and responsibility. the celebrity of Lee and Jackson, world-wide, and because the years elevate ever brighter, is yet condensed and personified admiration of theConfederate soldier, wrung from an unwilling global by way of his matchless braveness, patience, and devotion. Their status is a permanent monument to the effective deeds of the anonymous host who them via quite a bit toil and blood to excellent victories. The vulnerable, mostly, are borne down through the powerful; yet that doesn't turn out that the robust also are the precise. The vulnerable undergo improper, study the bitterness of it, and at last, by means of resisting it, develop into the defenders of correct and justice. while the amazing international locations of the earth oppress the feeble, they nerve the hands and fireplace the hearts of God's tools for the recovery of justice; and while one portion of a rustic oppresses and insults one other, the result's the pervasive malady,—war! as a way to figure out the wellbeing and fitness of the country, or depart it a bloody corpse.
