Excerpt from The War for the Union: Speech by Dr. O. A. Brownson; How the War Should Be Prosecuted; The Duty of the Government, and the Duty of the Citizen
Gentlemen, these are times when every man who has any sort of manhood in him, should be in earnest in saving the integrity and life of this great American nation. [loud applause] It is not the right of any man in these times to feel indifferent, or to say that the great crisis in which we now are is one that does not affect him, and in which he need take no concern. The questions now before the country are such as come home to the very bosom and business of every man, woman, and child, in this whole American com munity. The life of a nation is at stake. The existence of the country is at stake.
