Excerpt from Who Fought the Battle: Strength of the Union and Confederate Forces Compared
For nearly forty years we have had a restored national union. It has grown in the respect and admiration of all the peoples of the earth. It has the pride and love of all its own citizen... s. Its system is not a rope of sand. It is strong in its unity, and, instead of being a despotism, it is the same government of the people by the people on the foundations laid by the fathers.
The magnitude of the task of saving the Union, when the great trouble came, was much noticed and commented on at the time.
The Southern movement was so vast, and the power of the Union apparently so inadequate, it was regarded as an impossible thing forcibly to coerce the seceded States.
