" Does he ever realize that the events of Tuscaloosa, Little Rock and New Orleans are nothing more than an obscene parody of the meaning of his history? It is a debasement of his history, with all that was noble, courageous, and justifying bleached out, drained away. Does the man who, in the relative safety of the mob anonymity, stands howling vituperation at a little Negro girl being conducted into a school building, feel himself at one with the gaunt, barefoot, whiskery scarecrows who fought it out, breast to breast, to the death, at the Bloody Angle at Spotsylvania, in May, 1864? Can the man howling in the mob imagine General R. E. Lee CSA, shaking hands with Orval Faubus, Governor of Arkansas?"
