Epigraph
Dedication
First words
"The Southern people, driven to the wall, have no remedy but that of political independence. Forbearance has not only ceased to be a virtue, but has become absolute cowardice."
- NEW ORLEANS DAILY CRESCENT, December 17, 1860

Nothing could keep Edmund Ruffin away from the secession convention.
Quotations
Virginia's Tidewater planters tended to be Episcopalians. According to an old local saying, there were many ways to go to heaven, but a gentleman would choose the Episcopalian way.
