I have seen enough of [war] to make me look upon it as the sum of all evils.

“If the general government should persist in the measures now threatened, there must be war. It is painful to discover with what unconcern they speak of war, and threaten it. They do not know its horrors. I have seen enough of it to make me look upon it as the sum of all evils.”Thomas J. “Stonewall” Jackson, letter to a minister, December 19, 1860
South Carolina became the first southern State to secede the next day
