A Woman's War Record, by Septima Collis, 1889
“He [C.S.A. General Richard Ewell] could not understand how a Southern woman could espouse the Northern cause simply because she had married a Northerner . . . I told him that I had only followed the example of many other Southrons – I had ‘gone with my State,’ mine being the state of matrimony.”
