Abstract

No one seems to have much respect for the facts when they fly in the face of deep convictions about all that is holy and noble and true. This is what the Civil War is to us, a test of who was noble and true, who gave us something to identify with in our own time. Suggesting that all those border-state loyalty oaths reflected the extent of disloyalty in Missouri meant suggesting to the state archivists that they themselves were descended from traitors.
