(1840 - 1916)
  CHECK READING LIST (1)  

If war has its chivalry and its pageantry, it has also its hideousness and its demoniac woe. Bullets respect not beauty. They tear out the eye, and shatter the jaw, and rend the cheek.
      - [War]

War is science of destruction.
      - [War]

Christopher Carson, whose renown as Kit Carson has reached almost every ear in the country was born in Madison county, Kentucky, on the 24th of December, 1809.
      - Kit Carson, the Pioneer of the West
         (ch. I),
        (also titled Christopher Carson, familiarly known as Kit Carson)
        [Books (First Lines)]

He who loathes war, and will do everything in his power to avert it, but who will, in the last extremity, encounter its perils, from love of country and of home--who is willing to sacrifice himself and all that is dear to him in life, to promote the well-being of his fellow-man, will ever receive a worthy homage.
      - Napoleon Bonaparte [Patriotism]
