Quote of the day

“Captain, my religious belief teaches me to feel as safe in battle as in bed. God has fixed the time for my death. I do not concern myself about that, but to be always ready, no matter when it may overtake me.” He added, after a pause, looking me full in the face: “That is the way all men should live, and then all would be equally brave”

Lt. General Thomas Jackson speaking to then Captain John D. Imboden,
Stonewall Jackson and the American Civil War,
G.F.R Henderson, Vol. 1, p. 163.”
