Excerpt from The South's Burden, or the Curse of Sectionalism in the United States

Nearly 40 year ago Dr. Robert L. Dabney, who had served for a time on Stonewall Jackson's staff, said this:

"Few minds and consciences have that stable independence which remains erect and undebauched amidst the disappointments, angnish and losses of defeat, the desertion of numbers, and the obloquy of a lost cause. Hence it has usually: been found in the history of subjugated nations that they receive at the hands of their conquerors this crowning woe - a despondent, cringing and cowardly spirit. The wisest, kindest, most patriotic thing which any man can do for his country amidst such calamities is to aid in preserving and reinstating the tottering principles of his countrymen; to teach them, while they give place to inexorable force, to abate nothing of righteous convictions and self-respect. And in this work he is really a benefactor of the conquerors as well as of the conquered; for thus he aids in preserving that precious seed of men who are men of principle and not of expediency; who alone (if they can) are able to reconstruct society, after the tumult of faction shall have spent its rage, upon the foundations of truth and justice. The men at the North who have stood firmly aloof from the errors and crimes of this revolution, and the men at the South who have not been unmanned and debauched by defeat - these are the men whom Providence will call forth from their seclusion when the fury of fanaticism shall have done its worst, to repair its mischiefs and save America from chronic anarchy and barbarism, if, indeed, any rescue is designed for us."
