The love of the South for American institutions.
Did not the South
love American institutions?
What school-boy cannot tell?
Who wrote the great Declaration?
Who threw down the gage, ‘Liberty or Death?’
Who was chief framer of the Constitution
Who became its great expounder?
Who wrote the Bill of Rights
which is copied far and wide by free commonwealths?
Who presided over the convention that made the Constitution
and became in field and councils its all and all defender?
, speak from your graves and give the answer.
