Rather let us say to the North, "Retrace your steps;" and to the South, "take your hand; the remedy for your grievances is in, and not out of the Union." The only man of the Revolution who was unfaithful, was from the North. Benedict Arnold rests under the scorn of the world as a traitor to his country.
