It Is not easy to gl.o to those of a
later generation any clear Idea of thit
exlriordlnnr) spiritual awakening which
passeit oier the countrs at the nrst red
elgml ItreB of the war between the
Statis. Jt was not our earliest apota
l.pse, a hundred srura before the nation
had been reeaed to Itself,, when after
long discussion and much searching of
heart the people of Iho colonies had re
solved that to llvo without llherts was
worset than to die, and had thereforo
vvbgtred In iho solemn game of war
'Ihclr ll.rs, Ihclr fortunes und their sn
cre.l honor" In a stress of heat and
labor unutterable, tho lountrs bad been
himmered and welded together, but
thereafter for nearly a contur there had
leen nothing In our lite to loucb the In

nothing which challenged tho nations

Into- Ihe Valley of Decision. Tho ques

thundered from Innumerable pulpits had
caused 111 Ihelr congregallons Iho bitter
strife ond dlss.nslon to which only casta
of conscience .an give rise, was ev.r

merely In tho various chann. Is of pub
licity was It alive and t tumorous Aliout
every llirsldo In the land, hi tho conver
sation ot frlnds nnd neighbors, and,
deeper sllll In the secret nf millions of
human heirts, the bitlle of opinion was
waging, and all men felt and savewith
moro or less clearness that an answer lo
tho Importunate question, Rh ill the n v

And 1 do not mean that In the North
nlono there was this austere w resiling
Willi conscience. In the South as well,
below all the efferi esceuce and excite,
cut of a people perhaps moie U.cn to
eloquent speech than we were there was
the profound agons of question nnd nn
swer Ihe summons to decide whether
honor nnd freedom did not call them lo

II la easy for partisanship to say that
