Stonewall Jackson on the coming conflict

We do not wish it:

People who are anxious to bring on war don't know what they are bargaining for; they don't see all the horrors that must accompany such an event.

But, should it come:

If we cannot be successful in defeating the enemy should he advance, a kind Providence may enable us to inflict a terrible wound and effect a safe retreat in the event of having to fall back. - To Joseph E. Johnston, 1862.

Shoot the brave officers, and the cowards will run away and take the men with them. - To Richard S. Ewell.

Si vis pacem, para bellum
