  “We went to war on account of the thing we quarreled with the North about. I never heard of any other cause of quarrel than slavery….Men fight from sentiment. After the fight is over they invent some fanciful theory on which they imagined that they fought.”

 "Our new Government is founded upon exactly the opposite ideas; its foundations are laid, its cornerstone rests, upon the great truth that the negro is not equal to the white man; that slavery, subordination to the superior race, is his natural and moral condition.
