Victims of tyranny wielded by cowards and base men; and when allowed the country is going to destruction-Mary Curtis Lee

It is bad enough to be the victims of tyranny, but when it is wielded by such cowards and base men…it is indeed intolerable. The country that allows such scum to rule them must fast be going to destruction.” Mary Custis Lee, 1866

Mary Anna Randolph Custis Lee was the great-granddaughter of Martha Custis Washington and wife of Robert E. Lee, the prominent career military officer who commanded the Confederate Army of Northern Virginia during the American Civil War. Wikipedia
