Descripción

26pp. Disbound, toned, light foxing. Good+. An unreconstructed Southerner's July 4th Address, with an unusual imprint. Patton's whole family had gone to VMI. Two of his brothers, he says, "fell amid the 'din and roar of battle,' beneath the southern flag." Here he celebrates, not the Nation, but the VMI family, and dwells at length on the VMI experience, which emphasizes "the great principle of SUBORDINATION.to all lawful authority-- for this, and this alone is duty." The antagonist of this principle is Universal Equality, a pernicious doctrine that emanates from Satan himself, "the great adversary of God and man." Patton laments the decline of "Southern influence," which was "once potent in the land and operated to check the growing license." Swem 4174. N° de ref. de la librería 30909
