"The fury of the propagandists of slavery, and the calm determination of their opponents, are now diffused from the distant territory over wide-spread communities, and the whole country, in all its extent--marshalling hostile divisions, and foreshadowing a strife, which, unless happily averted by the triumph of Freedom, will become war--fratricidal, parricidal war--with an accumulated wickedness beyond the wickedness of any war in human annals; justly provoking the avenging judgment of Providence and the avenging pen of history, and constituting a strife, in the language of the ancient writer, more than foreign, more than social, more than civil; but something compounded of all these strifes, and in itself more than war; sed potius commune quoddam ex omnibus et plus quam bellum. Such is the crime which you are to judge"--Page 2
