But for One Man
2 April 2013

"And I sought for a man among them, that should make up the hedge, and stand in the gap, before me for the land, that I may not destroy it: but I found none." (Ezekiel 22:30)

Shall the Almighty God find a man willing to "make up the hedge, and stand in the gap" or shall He look upon this land, beholding the corruption and violence, and declare an end to all of its inhabitants.  One man can make a difference, or the Lord God would surely not have phrased the above scriptural verse in such a manor.  Can anyone deny the likelihood; the colonist would have lost the revolution to Great Britain, had George Washington not been available?  Most military tacticians speculate that had General Thomas J. "Stonewall" Jackson lived, and marched into Gettysburg with General Robert E. Lee, at the head of his army.  The tide of battle would have brought a quick and decisive Confederate victory!
.

Likely ending in the surrender of Washington DC, to Confederate forces less then a month later!  Such a victory would have rallied the Southern People!  The sick and wounded would have left their hospital beds early, in order not to miss the surrender of "Union" Generals U.S. Grant and W.T. Sherman outside of Vicksburg.  In Tennessee, Union General Thomas would have no doubt been pacing the floor, in War Council with his Commanders, pondering what to do next.  General Lee's army in Washington, and General John C. Pemberton's victorious army marching north out of Vicksburg.  No doubt well equipped with Yankee arms, ammunition and food supplies!
.
Growing in strength with each passing mile, the Union General, knowing the Gray Tide was coming his way, would no doubt be contemplating his chances of victory, against a possible need to retreat north. The Governor of Ohio, searching through every scrape of information coming his way, and knowing the "Gray-backs" would eventually cross the Ohio River and drive hard toward Columbus and the Great Lakes thus splitting 'The Union.'
.
The States of Ohio, Indiana and Illinois might have opted out of the war, sending emissaries racing toward Richmond, and the nearest Confederate Command Headquarters, seeking peaceful relations with the Confederacy.  Could it have happened?  I'd bet my hound dog it could have!   But for one man!  Given the shortcomings of our modern day movement, we can and likely would turn the tide toward a decisive Confederate Victory, and the vindication of our just and honorable cause.  But for one man!

Deo Vindice!
