Excerpt from Valuable Suggestions Addressed to the Soldiers of the Confederate States
Arms. Victory, therefore, is likely to ensure my safety. But in running, I may be killed by the very men whom I would have disabled had I stood firm. I weaken our forces, throw the battle up... on a reduced number, expose them to increased labors and losses, become then an object 0 their hatred and contempt, dispirit them, an invigorate the foe, not only for this battle, but for all future battles. The regu lars show that battles lpse their terrors when we become used to them; how am I ever to become used to them by running? If I save my life by it, I increase the danger of being made prisoner a hundred fold. Fear or-no fear, then, I will fight as long as the regulars.
