Our new government's cornerstone rests

Our new government's cornerstone rests upon the great truth that the Negro is not equal to the white man; that slavery, subordination to the superior race, is his natural and normal condition. This, our new government, is the first in the history of the world based upon this great physical, philosophical and moral truth. -- Alexander Stephens, vice president of the Confederacy
And so the next time a Confederate apologist tries to tell you that the Civil War wasn't "about" slavery, you just shout yee-haw!
