Orange, N. J. (New Jersey, United States) (search for this): article 3
he is a native or a citizen, or in which he has accumulated health.--In such a case no age or calling constitutes an exemption. Let the word refugee, when applied to such, become infamous. To stimulate to a heroic defence of these important cities, it may be useful to refer to that which has been done elsewhere in like circumstances. The history of one republic is rich in instances of heroic defence of cities. Reference is made to the Netherlands during the lifetime of William of Orange, a hero who deserves to be placed by the side of Washington. There are strong points of resemblance between the rise of the Dutch Republic and that of our own Confederacy. The contest between Holland and Spain was most unequal. The latter had the largest and best army in the world — veteran troops, trained by Charles and commanded by that great General, the Duke of Alva. The former had no organized army. Its population was small; its resources limited; its territory insignificant.
France (France) (search for this): article 3
Whether we fight him eight years or eighty years, what shall prevent our growth during the struggle to a great nation? Again the Netherlands fought their powerful enemy without assistance. They sought it, but in vain. They sought it from France; but France was Catholic, and feared Spain, and considered the contest hopeless. Similarity in religious opinion gave a right to expect assistance from England. But Holland was struggling for civil as well as religious liberty, and therefore thFrance was Catholic, and feared Spain, and considered the contest hopeless. Similarity in religious opinion gave a right to expect assistance from England. But Holland was struggling for civil as well as religious liberty, and therefore the despotic, though Protestant Elizabeth, refused assistance. Alone these brave Hollanders fought out that weary war, and alone they conquered a peace. We have weakly sought assistance from these two same Powers. It has been refused us. We also, alone, must fight this weary war, and alone we shall conquer a peace. The designs of their enemy were the same as the designs of ours. The purpose of Spain was the absolute subjugation of the rebellions provinces.--Its intention was "to crush
Atlanta (Georgia, United States) (search for this): article 3
Lessons from history. The Atlanta Confederacy has an interesting article on the lessons of history as applicable to this war. After complimenting Vicksburg for its tenacious courage, it says: There are others of our cities to be attacked this winter. Charleston, Savannah, and Mobile, will feel in their turn the power of the enemy. How will they meet it? Will they resist to the death, or will they surrender? One thing is certain: they have had time and means to make themselves impregnable. It has been possible so to girdle them with fortifications that a small force could defend them against a host. If they fall, it must be either by the timidity of their defenders, or neglect, or want of skill in the military authorities. The country will so regard it. There can, however, we trust, be no fears of the result. It is scarcely possible to conceive that anything has been neglected which ought to have been done. There is every reason to believe that our brave troop

Alone these brave Hollanders ign to drive us out, and cause our homes to be occupied by strangers, without regard to race or complexion, vain purposes both in the one case and the other. Holland took up arms to defend her civil and religious rights. Spain wished to make her a submissive dependent, politically. The doctrines of the Reformation had become established in Holland. Spain determined to extirpate heresy, and re-established Catholicism. She assailed the civil and religious conscience of Holland. Death was considered by the brave Dutch as being preferable to submission. In both particulars was Spain foiled. The Republic was established and freedom to worship God secu
