  • Calling a secessionist in Virginia in 1861 "conservative," "naive," or "urban" is a pretty spectacular misnomer. :)

  • The naive conservative felt he needed to sound urban as well as patriarchal.

  • From the Staunton (Va.) Spectator, May 14, 1861:

    "How anyone after reading the editorials of many of the leading papers published at the North, can vote against secession, or even not vote at all, I cannot imagine. Is it not the threatened policy of the North to invade our State and take from us by brute force, our lands, our houses, and all that we possess, and divide it among themselves? Their cry is "booty and beauty," which means, in plain English, as I understand it, to steal our lands from us, and ravish our females. Any one that doubts can get the newspapers and read for themselves."
