Excerpt from Some Reminiscences

My grandmother was the most intellectual per son that I have ever known. She lived in our fam ily until 1867, when she died at the age of eighty five. I was raised at her knee and she taught me all that I ever learned during the school period. Sir John Falstaff says, If I know what the inside of a church is made of, I am a pepper-corn. I can say the same of a schoolhouse. I have never to this day seen the inside of one. My grandmother hated Thomas Jefferson as if he had been the Devil, and in that I have no doubt she re?ected the Views of the Chief Justice. But at any rate, she thought him the embodiment of all evil. I have heard her often denounce him as centering in himself all that was dangerous to the American people. Federalism versus Democracy.

In 1860 the people of Virginia were strongly in favor of the Union. But when Mr. Lincoln called for troops to coerce the States south of us, opinion in Virginia changed in the twinkling of an eye. The entire population became unanimous for sid ing with the States to the south and resisting coercion to the death.
