    “How horrible is war, but what can we do? These people of the North without any warrant of law, have invaded our country, stolen our property, insulted our defenseless women, hung and imprisoned our helpless old men, behaved in many cases like an organized band of cut throats and robbers. What can we do?” ~Major Hunter McGuire

    “Do,” Major McGuire, he replied with his voice ringing,... “why shoot them!” ~ Stonewall Jackson

    VA was under Attack, I don't think that can be debated. He wouldn't open his mail on Sunday in order to observe the Sabbath. But would kill Yankees on that day or any other. He had a house servant or two which put him on par with a New England White Professional not that many years before.
