Thomas R. Hudd quotes
The defeat of the Democratic party in 1860 has been followed by the revolt of several of the states from the Union, and by the present terrible civil war because it was defeated by a sectional party. We probate that revolt as unnecessary, unjustifiable, unholy! Devoted to the constitution, we invoke the vengeance of God upon all who raise their sacrilegious hands against it; whether wearing the soft gloves of peace, or the bloody gauntlets of war.
Lecture in 1862.
