Southern Wisdom

22 May

“I worked night and day for twelve years to prevent the war, but I could not. The North was mad and blind, would not let us govern ourselves, and so the war came.”

Jefferson Davis

    Hey, that’s a great quote. Is it from “Rise and Fall of the Confederate Government?”

    I actually found it doing a general quote search. There was two versions of this quote; it took quite a bit of research to find the accurate one.

    This quote hit me as especially meaningful.

    Would you mind sharing with me the source(s) of the quote, please? I’d love to use it on SLMN but I need to have a source. Thanks kindly. Y’all take care.

    PS I’m meeting with a Carlista (Spanish Cathlics primarily from Navara and Pais Vasco who were Confederate allies – 5,000 0f them came to Dixie to fight for the CSA) in a little over a week’s time. Going to be interviewing a represenative from the largest Carlista party in Spain today. Should be a great interview. If you love Catholic patriots then this is about as hard-core as it gets. lol Hopefully several videos will be coming from the interview. Just a heads-up. Y’all take care. God bless and Deo Vindice!

    The quote is reported as being from a Letter to James Frazier Jacquess & James R. Gilmore, 17 Jul 1864. I do not personally have a copy of the letter; if you do I would appreciate it if you could email a copy to me.

    I have an extensive collection of quotes and that is the only one I do not have the original source letter for. Later today I will be posting a quote from a speech that Davis made before the Confederate Congress on May 2, 1864, that I think is very revealing about the atrocities the Union was inflicting.

    I know my wife has been reading their website and I will definitely let her know about the videos. My wife is first and foremost a Texan, but she is very interested in learning about the history of her countries of origin.
