Famous quotes containing the words soldiers and/or confederate:

    It was soldiers went marching over the rocks
    And still the birds came, came in watery flocks,
    Because it was spring and the birds had to come.
    No doubt that soldiers had to be marching
    And that drums had to be rolling, rolling, rolling.
    Wallace Stevens (1879–1955)

    Well, you Yankees and your holy principle about savin’ the Union. You’re plunderin’ pirates that’s what. Well, you think there’s no Confederate army where you’re goin’. You think our boys are asleep down here. Well, they’ll catch up to you and they’ll cut you to pieces you, you nameless, fatherless scum. I wish I could be there to see it.
    John Lee Mahin (1902–1984)
