Excerpt from The War and Its Lessons

The American struggle for Nationality, which commenced with the downfall of Fort Sumter, marks an era in the history of civilization, as critical as any the world has ever witnessed. Those who are agitated by the actual contacts and immediate perils of civil war have scarce had opportunity to measure the immensity of interests involved; but those who are calmly examining the worlds Present by the worlds Past, and by all the principles and illustrations which facts, reason and experience may furnish, are solemnly and weightily impressed with the conviction that we are engaged in transactions which, for weal or wo, are to tell immensely on all that relates to morals, liberty, government and law. The epoch is one for which we need to arouse all the energies of the body, the intellect and the soul, that as true men of a trying age, we may be equal to the emergencies, which in the course of events, have fallen on our times.

The part already enacted, has been upon no ordinary scale. At the very commencement of the conflict ominous clouds hovered over our political horizon. Wise men quaked because of fear, and strong men strung their nerves to a higher key, feeling that we were on the verge of a conflict which involved the interests of themselves, their country, their posterity, and all that related to the welfare of civil and religious liberty all over the broad earth. Traitors, with stealthy hand, had been loosing the cords and unbraiding the strands of our strength until it almost seemed as if the grand cable of American power had dwindled to a thread. But slender as it appeared, the central, close-woven braid of republican Nationality was not yet sundered.
