ADDRESS OF THE PRESIDENT
TO THE SOLDIERS OF THE CONFEDERATE
STATES.
AFTER MORE THAN TWO YEARS OF WARfaro
scarcely equalled in the number, magnitude, and
feajtful carnage of its battles; a warfaro in which your
, courage and fortitude have illustrated your country
and attracted not only gratitude at homo, but admira"
tion abroad,'your euonues continue a struggle, iu
which our linnl triumph must bo inevitable. Unduly
elated with their recent successes, they imagine that
temporary reverses can quell your spirit or shake
your determination, and they are now gathering heavy
masses lor a general invasion in tho vain hope that
by adesporate effort success may at.lcngth be reached.
You know too well, my countrymen, what they
mean by success. Their malignant rage aims at nothing
less flian tho extermination of yourselves, your
wives and children. They seek to destroy what they
cannot plunder. They propose as the spoilsof victory
that your homes shall bo partitioned among tho
wretches whoso atrocious cruelties have stamped infamy
on their Government. They design to incite
servile insurrection and light the tires of incendiarism
whenever they can reach your homes, and tlicy debauch
the inferior race, hitherto docile and contented
by promising indulgence of tho vilest passions as tho
price of treachery. Conscious of their inability to prevail
by legitimate warfaro, not daring to make peace
lest tl'.PV sllfillkl tin linrinil (rr?tn ...........
J V....VV* van VIIVII OVHbO Wl p?/? UI,
tho men who now rulo in Washington refuso even to
confer on the subject of putting an end to outrages
which disgrace our age, or to listen to a suggestion
for conducting the war according to the usages of
civilization.
Fellow citizens, no alternative is left you but victory,
or subjugation, slaver}' and the utter wiin of your
selves, your families and }'our country. The victory
is within your reach. You need but stretch forth
your hsnds to grasp it. For this and nil that is necessary
is that those who are called to the Held by
ever} motive that can move tho human heart, shqphl
promptly repair to the post of duty, should stand by
their comrades now in front of the foe, and thus so
strengthen the armies of tho Confederacy as to ensure
success. The men now absent lrom their posts would
if present in the field, suffice to create numerical
equality between our force and that of the invaders
?and when, with any approach to such equality*
have we failed to be victorious? 1 believe that but
few of those absent4are actuated by unwillingness ;o
serve their country; but that many have found it difficult
to resist the temptation of a visij to their homes
and tho loved ones from whom they have been so long
separated; that others have left for temporary
attention to their affairs with tho intention of
returning, and then have shrunk from the consequences
of their violation of duty; that others again
have left their posts from mere restlessness and desire
of change, each quieting the upbraings of his tjon science,
by pursuading himself that his individual services could
have no influence on the general result.
These and other causes (although far less disgraceful
than the desire to avoid danger, or to escape from
the sacrifices required by patriotism.) are nevertheless,
grcvous faults, and plate the cause of our beloved
country, and of everything we hold dear, in imin
iirent peril, r repeat that the men who now owe
duty to their country, who have been called out and
have not yet reported for duty, or who have absented
themselves from their posts, are sutlieient in number
to secure us victor}' in the struggle now impending.
? I call oti you then, my countrymen, to hasten to
your camps, in obedience to the dictates of honor and
duty, and summon tlioso who have absented them*
selves without leave, or who have remained absent
bCVOUd the neriod allowed l?v their fnrlf?ii<vlie in
Pair without delay to tlieir respective commands, and
I do hereby declare that 1 grant a general pardon and
amnesty to all officers and men within the Confederacy,
now absent without leave, who shall, with the least
possible delay return to t heir proper posts ot duty, but
no excuse will he received for any delay beyond twenty
days after the publication of this proclamation in the
Stato in which the abscntco may bo at the date of
the publication. This amnesty and pardon shall extend
iO all who have boon accused, or who have boon
convicted and are undergoing sentence for absence
without leave, or desertion, excepting only those who
have been twieed convicted of desertion.
Final I}', 1 conjure my countrywomen?the wives,
mothers, sisters and daughters of tho Confederacy?to
use their all-powerful intluence in aid of this call, to
add ono crowning sacrifico to those which their patriotism
has so freely and constantly offered on their
country's altar, and to take caro that nono who owe
scrvico in the lield shall be sheltered at homo from tho
disgrace of having deserted their duty to their families,
to their country and to their God.

States, at Richmond, this 1st day of An[Seal]
