Quotes - Stonewall Jackson-Patrick Cleburne-Cicero

SHNV Compatriots,
The Quotes by Confederate Generals Stonewall Jackson and Patrick Cleburne show that they fully understood the consequences of victory by the Northern socialists and the quote by Cicero describes modern day America after 150 years of Yankee rule. America is following the same road to destruction that the Roman empire followed.

Colonel Stuart, if I had my way we would show no quarter to the enemy. No more than the redskin showed your troopers. The black flag, sir. If the North triumphs, it is not alone the destruction of our property, it is the prelude to anarchy, infidelity and the ultimate loss of free and responsible government on this continent. It is the triumph of commerce, banks and the factory. We should meet the Federal invaders on the outer verge of just and right defence, and raise at once the black flag. No quarter to the violaters of our homes and firesides. Our political leadership in Richmond is too timid to face the reality of the coming war. They should look to the Bible. It is full of such wars. Only the black flag will bring the North quickly to their senses and rapidly end the war.

"Every man should endeavor to understand the meaning of subjugation before it is too late... It means the history of this heroic struggle will be written by the enemy; that our youth will be trained by Northern schoolteachers; will learn from Northern school books their version of the war; will be impressed by the influences of history and education to regard our gallant dead as traitors, and our maimed veterans as fit objects for derision... It is said slavery is all we are fighting for, and if we give it up we give up all. Even if this were true, which we deny, slavery is not all our enemies are fighting for. It is merely the pretense to establish sectional superiority and a more centralized form of government, and to deprive us of our rights and liberties."

-- Maj. General Patrick R. Cleburne, CSA, January 1864, writing on what would happen if the Confederacy were to be defeated
