�You, you people of the South , believe that there can be such a thing as peaceful secession. You don’t know what you’re doing… The country will be drenched in blood. You mistake the people of the north. They are a peaceable people, but an earnest people, and will fight too, and they are not going to let this country be destroyed without a mighty effort to save it… The North can make a steam-engine, a locomotive, or a railway car; hardly a yard of cloth or shoes can you make. You are rushing to war with one of the most powerful, ingeniously mechanical and determined people on earth right at your doors. You are bound to fail!� William Tecumseh Sherman to a Southern colleague shortly before the American Civil War. (via crazyeyes210)
