* The blessed and ever-glorious dead are not here to defend their memories from the taint
of the reproach of rebellion and treason. Alas! I am alive and here, and am bound at every
bazard to declare that these men were no rebels and no traitors ... that they were pure
patriots, loyal citizens, well tried and true soldiers, brave, honest, devoted men, who proved
their faith in their principles by the deaths which canonized them immortal heroes and
martyrs,"
