The True Motive Power

Ignatius_Loyola

“The common people see and hear the big, noisy wheels of the Southern Confederacy’s cars; they call them Jeff Davis, Lee, Toombs, Beauregard, Semmes, ect., and they honestly think that they are the motive power, the first cause of our troubles. But this is a mistake. The true motive power is secreted behind the thick walls of the Vatican, the colleges and schools of the Jesuits, the convents of the nuns, and the confessional boxes of Rome.” Abraham Lincoln
