- “No man has ever left behind him a character more venerated than George Wythe,” praised Thomas Jefferson of his tutor. “His virtue was of the purest tint; his integrity inflexible, and his justice exact; of warm patriotism, and, devoted as he was to liberty, and the natural and equal rights of man, he might be called the Cato of his country” (Lincoln 1).
- Civil War IN THIS meeting of the Southern Historical Association great emphasis has been placed upon a re-examination of numerous phases of our history relating to the Civil War.

- When the issue of slavery and the Founding Father’s arise, it is clear that despite some of their noble actions, the Founding Fathers were indeed hypocritical to true American ideals in both action and in thought.
