    By courage I do not mean the savage animal instinct that makes a man insensible to danger – a bulldog has that – but I mean that strong conviction which keeps ever before the mind the true aim of life, and unswerving loyalty to that conviction. You must have not the courage of Alexander, but the courage of Socrates; not the courage of Caesar, but the courage of Washington; not the courage of Frederick the Great, but the courage of Lincoln; not the courage of Napoleon, but the courage of George H. Thomas and of Robert E. Lee. The most magnificent example of courageous self-sacrifice that has ever lifted up humanity, was seen in our Civil War, when true manhood reached the extreme height possible in an era of war.
