It is only right that the children of the South know the full meaning of their birthright. Nothing will stir Southern boys to become true and noble men more than to know the history of such men as Robert E. Lee whose trust was ever in the God of battles, of "Stonewall" Jackson who never fought before he prayed, and of the Southern women who gave their dearest men to the cause, yet never wavered in their loyalty to it. The object of this little book, prepared for Tennessee schoolchildren in the early Twentieth Century, is to refresh in the minds of the young the principle which inspired their ancestors - the principle of dying for what they believed to be right.
