Lincoln as the South Should Know Him free pdf Excerpt from Lincoln as the South Should Know Him What thick hides and short memories we Southern folk have, and how inconsistent we are! We call down anathema on the Kaiser's head fur the devastation of Belgium- in almost the same breath we raise paeans to Lincoln, who was responsible for the far more causeless and ruthless devastation of the South by Sherman Sherman, who waged war so atrocious that its very author could find no name on earth to match, but had to go down below to get it. Well might be, with Milton's Satan, say: "Where I am is hell." Satan lit its fires in his own breast- Sherman in the desolated homes of war, made widows and orphans. If Belgium had its Louvain and Antwerp, so also had the South its Columbia, its Atlanta, its Savannah, its Charleston. Countless Belgium homes have been burned. But there has been nothing like systematic, utter destruction. The Kaiser, outnumbered, hard beset, the very existence of his country in imminent peril, has increased his slender store of food by robbing Belgium, electing to starve for rather than friend. (This was written in January, 1915.) That vengeance, not necessity, prompted the black path that Sherman cut through the South, the evidence is full and damning. On December 18, 1864, General Halleck, Chief of Staff to President Lincoln, and necessarily in close touch with him, writes to Sherman as follows: "Should you capture Charleston, I hope by some accident the place will be destroyed. And if a little salt can he sown on its site, it may prevent the future growth of nullification and secession. Shernum, on the 24th, answers as follows: "I will bear in mind your hint as to Charleston, and do not think that salt will be necessary. When I move, the Fifteenth Corps will be on the right of the right wing, and their position will naturally bring them into Charleston first- and if you have watched the history of that corps you will have remarked that they do their work pretty well. The truth is, the whole army is burning with an insatiable desire to wreak vengeance on South Carolina." About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
