GRAHAM BROTHERS, Lessees,;
First Consideration and Special Attention Giver ,to Small Tracts
1 statesman, but more than all, he had
i been a great man. lie had lived
with the eyes of the world upon him,
I and the world waited for news, from
that quiet room. The thoughts of the
dying man were not upon his bril brilliant
liant brilliant military career or upon the
world-wide honors that had come to
him they counted as nothing. But
with the clearer vision that is given
to those who have tried to see the
right, when the veil between Here
and There has grown thin, V he saw
the best for all, for North, for South,
nd the word that came to a listening
nation was "Let us have peace'
That word was but the echo of the
prayer that rose from the heart of
every thinking man and woman in
the South in the dark days of the
fifties. The men in the 'legislative
hails and in the political arena trho
could see the ominous sins, who
could even then hear the muttering
of the distant thunders of war realiz realized
ed realized the "grave peril it would bring to
the fair Southland, and prayed for
peace. Mothers and wives shuddered
already under the prophetic anguish
and heart-break that the lowering war
cloud threw over the land, and prayed
for peace. To the youth of the South
the thought of change or of danger
to their loved land seemed impossi impossibleyoung,'
bleyoung,' impossibleyoung,' gay, caref ree, radiant
and joyous in a civilization the like of
which has never been seen elsewhere
and will never be seen again. The
life was one of cultured ease arid
graceful t and free hospitality; perfect
courtesy of man to-man, though with
a distirict recognition on the part of
all, of the marked class distinction
which existed then as definitely as in
Europe to-day. The perfect homage
and chivalrous bearing of man to wo woman
man woman enclosed her, as it' were in ; a
garden of lilies. Served by a people
bound to, them by ties of humble af affection,
fection, affection, as the hand that fed, 'cloth 'clothed,
ed, 'clothed, and in every, way cared for them
as well as by the bond of master and
1 slave such were the conditions in the
South in the year preceeding the
Civil War. Men who took cogniz cognizance
ance cognizance of affairs knew they could hqt
endure. The political power was in
the hands of the aristocracy; the
young, men turned to, the profession
of the law as a, stepping stone to the
wider field of politics. The slaves, of
course, were not classed as a politi
cal factor, though they were a mighty
subject for discussion and lay heavi heavily
ly heavily on the hearts of their owners.. It
is a. matter of historical record that
the South, had made repeated efforts
to rid itself without bankruptcy of
the black burden of slavery. When
the true history of the Civil" War is
written, which can only be after a
a fair perspective of time and distance
shall have been reached, the fact
that will be made most clear will
be that the South fought, not for!
slavery, but for the sacred right of
The question of states rights and of
slavery had been a burning one for
years. The young men of the educa educated
ted educated class entered the field of law and
politics almost as a matter ofjcourse.
Every young Southerner had a genius
for government; they were trained
for generations in the mastery" off
slaves. That political affairs were in j
the hands of the educated class, was!
a part of the feudal tradition which
largely prevailed all through thej
South. However, the politicians and
those who made a study of events j
were not the only ones who saw thej
threatening war cloud. Through thej
country villages, towns and cities, j
there were men of leisure, merchants,!
clerks and mechanics, who realized i
that there was a crisis approaching.!
Those wfto knew what war meant,!
prayed that it might be' averted, but j
.while they prayed they drilled. Ev-j
ery cross-roads village had its little!
band of militia that drilled and studi studied
ed studied military tactics, for every man
knew that if the issue came it meant
war. lne boutn has long ago ac-i
cepted the fact that slavery is noj
longer a practical or desirable thing, j
but there is no one who will deny:
that we were constitutional in our de demand
mand demand for the right to secede. The
South did not want war. She wanted
the privilege of self government.

has been that never was an army

stronger sense of justice of their
cause. The Southern soldiers felt
that if they had to fig'ht they must
win if there' were justice in heaven
or earth. It was not an army of hire hirelings

hundreds of them, were from the
same social class as the officers; they

to serve their country as they were

There -were men in that army who
had wife and children, heavy cares
and responsibilities at home, but who
made what provision they could and
left them, at the call of country, to
the God of the helpless. There were
students from the colleges and uni universities,
