Джон Синглтон Мосби , известен также как «Серый Призрак» — кавалерийский офицер армии Конфедерации во время гражданской войны в США. Его отряд, 43-й батальон 1-го вирджинского кавалерийского полка был известен как «Рейнджеры Мосби» или «Рейдеры Мосби». Это было партизанское соединение, которому удавалось совершать стремительные рейды по тылам противника и безнаказанными уходить от преследования, растворяясь среди местного населения. Мосби действовал на территории севера штата Вирджиния, которая стала называться «Конфедерация Мосби». После войны Мосби работал юристом и поддерживал президента Гранта, своего бывшего противника. Так же он служил консулом в Гонконге и в министерстве юстиции.

Цитаты Мосби, Джон

„The South went to war on account of slavery.“

—  John S. Mosby
Context: The South went to war on account of slavery. South Carolina went to war, as she said in her secession proclamation, because slavery would not be secure under Lincoln. South Carolina ought to know what was the cause for her seceding. The truth is the modern Virginians departed from the teachings of the Father's.

„I am not ashamed of having fought on the side of slavery, a soldier fights for his country, right or wrong, he is not responsible for the political merits of the course he fights in. The South was my country.“

—  John S. Mosby
Context: Mason and Hunter not only voted against the admission of California (1850) as a free state but offered a protest against it which the Senate refused to record on its Journal, nor in the Convention which General Taylor had called to from a Constitution for California, there were 52 northern and 50 southern men, but it was unanimous against slavery. But, the Virginia senator, with Ron Tucker & Co. were opposed to giving local self-government to California. Ask Sam Yost to give Christian a skinning. I am not ashamed of having fought on the side of slavery, a soldier fights for his country, right or wrong, he is not responsible for the political merits of the course he fights in. The South was my country.

„Now while I think as badly of slavery as Horace Greeley did I am not ashamed that my family were slaveholders. It was our inheritance“

—  John S. Mosby
Context: Now while I think as badly of slavery as Horace Greeley did I am not ashamed that my family were slaveholders. It was our inheritance. Neither am I ashamed that my ancestors were pirates and cattle thieves. People must be judged by the standard of their own age. If it was right to own slaves as property it was right to fight for it.

„I wrote you about my disgust at reading the Reunion speeches. It has since been increased by reading Christian's report. I am certainly glad I wasn't there. According to Christian, the Virginia people were the abolitionists and the Northern people were pro-slavery.“

—  John S. Mosby
Context: I suppose you are now back in Staunton. I wrote you about my disgust at reading the Reunion speeches. It has since been increased by reading Christian's report. I am certainly glad I wasn't there. According to Christian, the Virginia people were the abolitionists and the Northern people were pro-slavery. He says slavery was 'a patriarchal' institution. So were polygamy and circumcision. Ask Hugh if he has been circumcised.

„I've always understood that we went to war on account of the thing we quarreled with the north about. I've never heard of any other cause of quarrel than slavery.“
